Good stuff, Shade. Congrats on the employ. Welcome to the unwashed masses.

On another note, I love that last F150. Gorgeous. Hate the new Exploder. Garbage.

Carry on. :D

hunt around for the old school NGS (new generation star) pcmcia looking thincards too. and or calibration CD's I have developed a way to copy those NGS cards and am looking for the one that does PCM flashing.

NGS is obsolete so they may just be lying around collecting dust.

Now, how the hell do I get the stain out of the passenger seat on my new Escape with the recycled seat fabric? I used a cleaner and all it did was make a bigger stain!! :angry:

Keep using the cleaner until the whole seat is evenly stained, then it will look normal :ph34r:

Steam clean... what happened that caused the stain? pop, beer, other fluids?ph34r.gif

but yeah, steam cleaning can take damn close to anything out... going to remove fluids spilled on the floor of a 06 F150 tomorrow hopefully...

:ford: GREAT DAY!!!!! i was put in charge of rinsing off all of our current inventory, and used a old beat up Blue 1993 F250, that has a 460 big block underhood and two pipes out the ass end, and a 425 gallon tank in the bed. pressure washed EVERY damn car there, in 80 degree heat! lol, that and this morning i was given the order to take a 2004 Avalanche to the local Chevrolet GM dealer for brake and engine moderate service... idk what they have underhood, but it sure gets up and moves... dont ask how i found that out ph34r.gif. Came back, and began reconning all the cars there, which is really the fun yet time consuming task oof checking to see if every car has a flag, lockbox, plates, and plate frames, as well as current dealer emblems. more of that for the first half of tomorrow.

Dinner rolled around about 12:50 and i had the pleasurous oppertunity to take a lot car out for it, so i picked a rather Very nice used 2005 Taurus in matador red over grey cloth to do it with... that vulcan still has balls hahaha. came back and finished lot wash, and began lot reconning. Another great day working for the Blue Oval :)

Wife went to lunch and put the bag on the seat. It leaked. I assume its greasy.

I'll try using our portable steamer.

Yes...steam is GOOD. My Mom has some machine called a Shark portable steamer. It did a great job on tile and a stain the dog made on the sofa.

I'd also try the old Woolite 1 part / 6 part Water mix. Blotting heavily with a terry cloth. See if that helps...
