Elon, Think your opportunity to blow snow is now in the process of arriving. Have fun. Marty, Soak them in Armor-All. That works in the South. But, I'm not sure anything will soften them at extremely cold temperatures. All depends upon the quality of vinyl used to make them.

Armor-All and vinyl dressings are essentially liquid polymers that soak into the vinyl to replace the polymers that have evaporated out over time. The window film that develops in cars with a lot of vinyl in the interior is from the evaporated polymers.

When I bought the toneau cover for my pickup, I was told that I should "never" use Armor-All on it. There is some component in the Armor-All mixture that causes the vinyl to shrink. The dealer recommended several other vinyl dressings, but said to stay away from Armor-All or it would shrink beyond usable shape. He said that was a recommendation from the company who makes the toneau covers. Just relaying what I was told. I've never put any dressing on it and it has held up well.

I used Armor-All on my tonneau cover. When I sold the truck, it was badly cracked, peeled. It sat in the sun all the time. Not sure if it was the UV, or the Armor-All, but it was in bad shape.

NICE looking cabs. So, Elon, how much snow you got there in CT now? Are you any warmer there in the cab or "just" out of the wind? Northern MN (PatRarick and I) we have 14" if I add right. No cab and the blower isn't working yet. What, me worry?

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
