I know there is a good amount of information here for you to digest, but this is the FL law that governs in your situation. You will have to follow the procedures identified at that link and make a public sale of the vehicle to enforce your lien. You can also bid on the vehicle at the public sale but you have the advantage as your lien is the starting price others bidders would ave to meet or beat.
