Default pays to have a friend in the business...

i called a buddy today that works for a cleaning company to see if he had any recommendations for a carpet spot cleaner. he said nothing I could find in stores, but then he mentioned he could just come out to my house with his machine, free of charge!

here are a few pics of the work

I worked on it until dark last night after he left. Trust me when I say there is nothing on the center console, or any other interior piece

I have a guy test driving it today, and another guy from the cities wants to see it soon.
