    For extra money my father had me detail on of his company delivery trucks. Now, im only 17, and by all means, not a professional. So, im going to take this time to ask for comments and criticism. Ill list my process and show some pictures.

    Process.
    1. Vacuum inside.
    2. Clean seats with a 25:1 water:Tide mixture and scrub with nylon brush.
    3. Clean floors with the same water:Tide mixture and scrub with nylon brush.
    4. Clean interior with McGuires Gold dash cleaner.
    5. Power wash cab and bed.
    6. Hand dry cab with terry towel.
    7. Clay bar cab with Mothers clay bar and detail spray.
    8. Wax cab with Mothers Showtime Wax.
    9. Address tires with a bleach/water mixture.
    10. Clean windows with windex.

    I didnt focus very much on the bed of the truck, mainly the cab and the interior.

    Anyways, i dont think this has been cleaned since first bought. And if it had, it was when one of the techs took a hose and sprayed out the inside. Like i said, im no professional and will be accepting to comments and criticism. Thanks for the look everyone.

    That truck looks a zillion times better now. Work trucks are always a booger to clean for me. Nice job! :bigthumb:

    That's what I was thinking :rofl: Reminds me next week I have got to get the farm truck detailed, hasn't been touched in months unless the rain did it. :o I was honestly embarrassed when I took it to the dealership for warranty work a couple of weeks ago.

    As far as the OP good job! How does the Tide work for you on those vinyl floors? I usually use some kind of de-greasing cleaner (Simple Green, or some cheap orange stuff I get at Wal Mart) or GM's Vinyl Cleaner. Also I use simple green on the tires, wheel wells, wheels, then dress them with Meguiars tire shine, and hit the wheels with some kind of wax once they are clean.

    MUCH improved! :)

    The main suggestion I would make is to add a polishing step between claying and waxing.

    the tide worked fairly well, i mainly just used it to put water down to get the mud off and to get some of the stains and oils off. worked really well on the seats tho. and, i wouldnt have added a polish, but i know ill come back in a week and there will be mud smeared all over it...
