This is my second S&S and I have to say its worse then the first First S&S - Sisters 02 VW Beetle (lots of pics)
. I do a couple cars a week (usually just quick interior with wash/polish) but sometimes my family members ask me to do their cars. This is my uncles 2005 GMC envoy (110,000 miles). He owns greenhouses/a dog so its used for everything, hauling plants, dog carrier, junk carrier, lol. He was leaving for Ohio (this morning) and wanted it clean for the ride with his wife. I got the car Thursday morning and finished Friday night. My main concentration was on the carpets/interior as they was the the worst. The exterior just got the quick wash (no polishing). Exterior
Two bucket wash with Surf City Pacific Blue Wash and Wax (was out of Duragloss 901)
Surf City Road Trip on front end and rockers (This stuff is awesome)
Meguiars APC (4:1) on wheel wells,frame, tires and door jambs Interior
Vacuum with shop vac (6hp), this took the longest. Was vacuuming, brusing, vacuuming, brushing...
Carpet/seats spots treated with 303 carpet cleaner
Carpets/seats scrubbed with a mix of Meguiars APC (4 ounces) and Oxy Brite (1-2 tablespoons)
"Extracted" with the BLGM (I highly suggest this to any weekend detailer, amazing at how much stuff is pulled out, also get the heated version)
All interior panels scrubbed with Meguiars APC (4:1)
All interior panels protected with 303.
All glass cleaned with Stoners Invisible Glass.
I have to say the carpets were the worst thing in the world, dog hair, bark/small twigs embedded into the carpet. I couldn't believe how much dirt was pulled out with the BLGM even after a vacuum (which looked halfway clean). I purchased it just before I did the detail (big purchase for my poor college self, lol), and have to say its one of the best tools I've purchased. Before
