    E class means Irri-class? nasty interior guide

    The day the earth stood still




    travelled 400 KM



    waited 4 months -


    accumulated dust & dirt



    more to show

    being the most attractive area




    stains dried


    My buddy being a good host, he usually drive his overseas partners around. A very hospitable person

    delayed him for 4 months - as i got ligaments tear from a fall during christmas last year & detailing make it worst


    sad to know that most of this VIPs guest couldnt cared much


    more stains found at the front passenger seats

    aiyah



    scuff with shoes stains



    more oily stains & film of dirt ages the vinyl

    obviously seats are foremost important & attention cant be neglect for hosting our guest


    Leather comes in many different styles and finishes. Some are tanned while others have colors dyed into them. All require separate means of cleaning


    a luxurious dirt stains door panel - makes the ride uneasy


    close up look


    more stains on harder area to reach & clean


    hmmm....looks pretty neglected & unattractive to comment



    the real issue is TIME & knowledge of how to.....many drivers would struggle & ended paying thousands of ringgit just to get their interior done up



    look at the rear seats


    close up


    macro


    Leather is an expensive natural product, so when a leather good acquires a stain its owner will want to know how to correctly clean leather. The best method is determined by the type of the stain and the type of the leather.

    sweats accumulated on the seats belts - makes them irritable even to straps on

    more coffee stains


    ta da



    more stains found on the bottom - the hidden treasure

    look at the back rest - stained seats

    Every type of leather is delicate and very susceptible to changes in temperature and weather so care must be taken to keep it in good shape.

    The hardest thing about cleaning leather is that the cleaning process can change the leather’s appearance. Since leather is essentially animal skin, it can suffer from much of the same problems as any other type of skin. It can dry out and crack or become permanently stained

    hmmm



    driver door panel - neglected & dirt accumalated


    where treasure are usually hided beneath




    the real issue


    my buddy struggle with the knowledge to detail himself, moreover everyone feel how inadequate as lack of training to do it on their own





    Live life to its fullness!

    Re: E class means Irri-class? nasty interior guide

    my whole intention is to lead him by his hand & show him how I detail the whole entire car with just 2 products



    the all mighty power clean with brushes

    & the all purpose protectant (leather protectant)




    look at the treasure gotten on both the safety belts nylon & leather


    stains gotten into the center console area - how irritating it can be to both the sights & feeling

    __________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


    I begin with a simple car wash OPC dilution 1:8 water spray on a wet MF & rinse off (intention of stripping all the previous waxes, dirts, suds ) BTW OPC is the only multipurpose cleaner you need for your entire care for both interior & exterior (saving you both headaches & $$$$$) spending of buying a-z cleaners ended up in the shelf redundant .....

    follow with ONR as lube & clay


    before


    after


    I usually have an older clay for these highly contaminated & dangerous area to work with


    working from 1800 till 0230

    getting a bit tired & hungry (knowing my buddy waited for 4 months & travelled 400KM) just to get his ride detail (I sacrifices my little comfort & food)


    before



    how much stains accumulated



    same bottle OPC dilution - using a different brushes to get it clean


    ta da


    just slightly over 10 sec



    the real challenge & enemy
    a neglect -


    For leather, vinyl, or the dashboard, dilute at 3:1 or as little as 8:1. Spray on and wipe off. For tougher grime and stains use at full strength

    Dilute Power Clean up to 3:1 to safely clean leather, vinyl, paint, and plastics. Remove old dash dressings and tough residues from interior panels. Wipe away spills and spots from leather seats. Special polymers and emulsifiers break down contaminants with minimal agitation.

    ta da



    a 50/50% view for your comparrision


    Noted - Cleaning leather can be risky because the cleaning process can change the color or appearance of the leather....Avoid products like mink oil, shoe polish and waxes when cleaning leather furniture or garments....

    before - the challenge


    ta ta


    a neglected leathers


    ta da


    a further detailing * its an additional for you to consider
    deeper cleaning with steamer

    on carpet area


    on leathers - loosing the dirt accumulated in leathers pores


    would have more pics- but both physical & time does not permits me





    imagine the amount of time i use

    it is not even dress or wax - no whatsoever oil & it makes evenn easier to clean the next round

    how little makes more !!!!!!! rather having it dress with oil & get dust trapped & baked under heat to be caked

    remember before


    only took me OPC wash in 5 minutes (not even dress with any expensive dress )


    time to say good night...very very hungry & tired



    its 0230 in the morning

    leaving behind you yet another detailing trails


    thanks for taking yr precious time to view .....

    elegantly yrs again





    now he only need to do a quick damp MF wipe down bi weekly & condition 3-4 times a year with OLP

    less is more - it isnt lesser (consistency pays off - cos no seats like leather seats ) & very expensive to replace or restores them

    many thanks to all my wonder friends sharing yr detailing-ship with me - you guys makes a different in my life - thanks for all your wonderful kind words of encouragement & support. God Bless

    turning from coal to gem - was simply a test of 8 endurable hours, detailing at this level is a constant fight of physical fatigue and patience, mental endurance, emotional suppressed - it always a lonely battle till you guys came along the way (thanks for all your cheers & encouragement)

    far best APC MPC ALL THE PC i have come across - thanks to Doc G...the man behind this great invention
    so aggressive till it can used for engine degreaser but yet gentle enough for leathers & paint

    thats simple amazing - I would have stop doing mobile detailing without this, cant imagine those days - where I need to pack at least 6-7 types of cleaners

    SD,D, APC, WB, LC, ......all this takes to spoils my day - is just simply forgetting one of them - now I only need one & many dilutions

    thanks buddy for yr kind words
