a. French cleats
b. Slats

It doesn't make a bit of difference. The solution to your problem is to promise to wash spouse's car every Saturday and have her park outside. You can run it through H2GO for about $6. And if the inside is really bad, they have a machine to do the floor mats, no charge and there is a vacuum at every drying station.

Nice idea, but a no-go. Car lives in the garage. Tools get wheeled outside and used there. She had the deal notarized.

The question is still open:
