    copied from teh thread I made at Autopia
    Repeat customer from last year needed the winter taken out of it. She was more concerned with the interior as she wanted teh car brought back to a newer state.

    Process was simple I'm no Guru like most of you guys but here it goes

    Interior:
    Thorough Vacuum
    Seats removed
    carpet steamed with shark steamer
    LGM and woolite mix
    Vacuumed again
    Surfaced cleaned with woolite mix
    Surfaces treated with 303
    Glass cleaned with stoners
    Interior deodorized

    Exterior

    ONR wash and rinse with an ONR spray down
    Surface clayed
    OHC
    OP
    FMJ

    Tires cleaned and tressed with Meguires tire shin
    Rims cleaned with sonus wheel cleaner and clayed and sealed with poor boys

    Befores

    :eek4: The interior before shots made me throw up in my mouth a bit. I know that sucked to vacuum too, the carpet is absolute shit in those Mazda3s.

    Really nice job bringing it back, almost makes me feel guilty that the SC430 I detailed today required less than 30 minutes to vacuum, clean the carpets, vinyl and leather. Almost. ;)

    I found a couple month old chicken dinner plate under a seat once while detailing, I knew it was chicken from the bone...

    Good job on the interior. I kind of liked doing the really dirty jobs, because you really get a sense of accomplishment when you are done. Although it sucks when the owner doesn't appreciate it and it comes back just as filthy in a couple months....

    i agree. but on another note, it's great when you get to bust a fast one out.

    Yeah it was a tonne of work as I really need to learn to speed up on the interior jobs but that carpet was a bitch. I did an accord a couple of weeks later (pics coming soon) and it was a breeze to clean up.
