The box is 113.5 inches long, the usable cargo length of the Metro with all of the seats out (besides the drivers seat) is only 103 inches... so the extra 10 inches stuck out the back and was wrapped in a roll of carpet.
The duct tape is covering a couple of plastic trash bags... NO, I did not stick THAT much tape to my car... The tape is ONLY on the glass (easy to clean) or to the black plastic mounting edge of the tail lights (not on the red lense)... except for 2 six inch long strips above the rear window... but those will be easier to clean than if I stuck ALL of the tape to paint...
I sure got some strange looks from people passing me on the interstate.
The little car did great on the drive, did 75 when I needed it to! I love it when it only takes 6 gallons to fill the tank!
The only thing bad about it is that my slowly leaking front crank timing seal became a FAST LEAKING SEAL (or NOT seal). So, another #(@#$ project to push my Intrepid re-power project back!
