When I bought my Tracker the once red seats were more of an orange...and dirty. I figured the red had just been faded by the sun until today.
I hadn't cleaned the seats from my last mudding trip, so yesterday I pulled all the seats out, hosed/vacced the tub and started pulling the seatcovers off the seats. The only one I removed was the rear bench seatback cover since it's the only one with a zipper. The rest of the covers are held on with hog rings. Since I don't have hog ring pliers, let alone rings, I just did that one cover.
My plan was to get the mud out of them, so I got approval from the wife and started filling the washer with water. I set the washer on "small load", let if fill, added about 1/2cup Simple Green, stuck the cover in, worked it around a bit to get the air bubbles out, and let it sit overnight. When I got up this morning I closed the lid and the washer went to work on gentle cycle (what the wife uses when washing her underwear [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]).
I couldn't believe how RED the cover was! I thought they were just faded, turns out they were orange from years of ground-in dirt.
Anyway a couple of pics:
