Not bad at all! Steps, products used? I do see a few things though, I will be glad to provide some advice on it if you like[/b]
Uh oh, what do you see?
This is how I usually do things...
1 - Vacume the interior after I remove everything that may be in the back seat. I do the floor, rear deck, dash, vents, door panels, and pull out the rear seat to get anything under there.
2 - Next, I spray A1 Lifter, carpet cleaner on the carpet. I let it sit a few seconds and rub it with a terry cloth.
3 - As the carpet is drying, I start cleaning the door panels, jambs, seals and the metal door part itself. I also clean the kickplates and moulding along the inside as I am going from door to door. I move the seats all the way back and clean the track covers and move them forward to clean the back ones.
4 - I clean the dash, vents and console after that.
5 - After that is done, I leave the carpets out and let it dry. While it is drying, I start washing the outside of the car. I wet it down, then get my bucket of suds ready to go. Before I start washing, I spray purple power on the rims, wheels and tire wells. This is a super powerfull degreaser (biodegradable, I like that). I start using my brush and work my way around the car. After I wash the car, I use the brush and go over the tires, rims and wheel wells fairly quickly. I just want to get the main dirt off. After that I rinse.
6 - I remove the brake dust from the rims (I despise this part!) and use a stiff brush to clean the tires and wells. I rinse this off easy as not to get the car wet again.
7 - While the wheels dry, I start to apply the wax (I also despise this part but it makes the car 100% more beutiful). I start at the front hood, work down the left side, to the rear and then up the right. The roof is the last part. I take a few smoke breaks in between all this
Once I let it sit for just a few minutes, I start back at the same spot and rub of any excess and use diaper clothes to really give it a good shine. I do this until I am done.
8 - After that is done, I go back to the interior and dry off the seals, jambs and such so I don't have water running down my clean car. I hate that. After that, I use a stiff brush and go over the carpet starting from driver to rear/rear then passenger. This gets any hair or rocks that were brought up from the carpet cleaner. Then I go over with the vacume one last time. I put the mats back in and shut the doors to keep out dust!
9 - Now the tires are dry so I use my stuff (list below) and go over them a couple times to give them a deep black wet look we all love. I then spray this on the wells. They are clean, but if you don't coat them with something, they look whitish/grey/black. This makes them look black and new again.
10 - (optional/depends on time) - Once all that is done, I go around with my Rain-X wax and apply it to all the windows. I don't clean them prior because the rain x stuff does a damn fine job of this. It also makes the glass appear mirror like. Just like the nice new shiny car. It all looks good in the end.
The stuff I use is as follows:
Wheels/Well - Meguires spray on stuff. It has an adjustable spray knob for low/med/high profile tires and such. I lasts a very long time and its really conevenient.
Interior - Armoral cleaning wipes. I use this on the dash, door panels, kick plates and the door jambs and seals. It says not to use it on paint, but I find if I do, I have to buff it, which makes is super shiny. Works for me. I used to use Armor all glass wipes for the interior as I found these don't streak and leave a "greasy" residue like armor all does.
Exterior - Meguires car soap and Meguires Gold Class wax. I love meguires stuff. Its not too pricey and it does what it says it does.
Leather - I use Armoral leather protectant wipes. Works good and gets the dirt off.
Now, like I said above, I used to use armoral on the interior. However, it would streak and look oily. I didn't like that. It was like my car was lubed in baby oil and getting ready to have hot sex with an SHO or sumin.
One thing I have MAJOR trouble with and is a pain in the butt is the interior glass. I can NEVER get it streak free. Ever. I have tried wipes, newspaper, tint safe glass cleaner, foamy glass cleaner, it just doesn't get it streak free.
What are your suggestions?
