Francis Abate and Zack Alexander have been diligently taking apart and documenting the passenger door panel. Greg Elvin & Geoff Smith have been doing the same to the backrest of the passenger front seat. And Mitch Cowan has been finishing the good work that students did on the back seat during last semester's Advanced Trim class..
