What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

So our little 1992 Caravan is quite nice, but 27 years of use have left their “dinge” on the inside (and peel on the outside). I decided Sunday morning that getting rid of this dinge was in order.

So, out came the seats:

So I whipped up a concoction of cleaner: Norwex laundry soap, Norwex stain remover, and a little Auto Armor carpet cleaner. Then I set to work.

I got the rear benches scrubbed down first:

With those looking like brand new, I set to cleaning the front:

Then I cleaned/reinstalled seats as I went, working front to back:

You can see the dinge line about mid floor where I was working back.

She looks almost new inside now! Only took about 3 hrs of good scrubbing, but the end result was well worth the time.
