    Toyota Hilux Head Turning Turnaround.

    Hello Folks.

    Hereís a Show Ní Shine I havenít done in a while - a Dirty Ute. (Truck, or Mini Truck to you guys)
    I do my fair share of dirty utes down here but this one I figured was worthy of a post here on AGO so here we go.

    A typical Kiwi farm truck or in this case a vineyard contractors truck, & yes this IS typical of the condition of most work utes down here.

    The exterior was a very simple decontamination wash & a very basic spray wax/sealant (Meguiars D156) but even still, this took the best part of two solid hours.
    The interior, well, that required a little more in-depth detailing/cleaning.

    Iím just going to let the pictures do the talking on this one, & Iíll run them in a ďBefore & AfterĒ sequence because itís easier to compare that way. If anyone does actually want to know the process I went through, feel free to ask & Iíll post it up no problem.

    Onto the pictures -












































    The exterior out of the way, time to tackle the interior -




















































    ... to be continued .....

    Re: Toyota Hilux Head Turning Turnaround.

    Great thread and documentation as always Aaryn!!

    There’s a forum member with a quote from Mike Phillips, something along the lines of, “I’ve seen people’s hand washes look better than others full details.”

    If ever there was a set of pictures to prove that point, the first few before/after pics are all the proof needed.

    I couldn't have said it any better than DMiglio! Unbelievable but then again, somewhat sad because it'll be trashed again in no time but, hey...it's a work truck. (note to self - get over it. they paid decent money and will most likely be back!)

    OMG that's terrible. Who lets their truck get that bad even though it is a work truck.

    Awesome work Aaryn and an amazing save!

    What's also is incredible is the short time it got you and it's spotless clean!

    High quality of the work and man the Ute looks brand new.

    Must ask but have an idea of what it can be. Is it Carpro PERL you put on the tires and trim? Those tires looked like they could not be coming back but man was I wrong LOL. Just awesome Aaryn!

    Re: Toyota Hilux Head Turning Turnaround.

    Those before and after pictures are infomercial level, by that I mean too good to believe. If I needed a detailer in your area and saw those pics on your web site you would have a life long customer. And whatever products you used for the interior, the companies should sponsor you and give you free products for life. I want to run out and buy everything you used lol. I HATE when I watch YT videos where they demo a product and act like the car's in bad shape, when the before looks 7.5/10 to me. You took a 2 to a 10. That's how a before and after should be.

    The exterior job was wow, like super wow
    but the interior? MY GAAAAAAAAAWD! You my friend win the internet with this detail, and I'm glad you're in another country. I don't even want competition like this in my state, hell even my country! How many microfibers did you kill doing this?

    You have inspired me to find the more tore down work truck I can find so I can have before and after pictures for my web site. *claps*

    I'm starting to think there's some black magic going on here...or you're going to the dealership when they buy the vehicle, take pictures then tell them you'll see them back in 5 years and to not wipe single spec of dirt during that time!!

    Absolutely mind blowing the transformation you created with that truck!
