I armor-all'd and resolved them after I vacuumed them. The resolve was katies idea and a great one. Really brought out the color in the cloth.

You know how dirty they were.

Yep. I got the hardware layed out for the roll bar. It's ready to go in. The seats are as well. I am going to scrub on the harnesses later. We can knock that out and start working on that list we made up.
