Pulling the seats is usually really easy for cleaning.



I found a dent in my drivers door

I finally stopped hauling all this crap so I decided it was time to clean up the back again. Used the upright portion of the vacuum and then I used the carpet cleaner on it. GOODBYE brake dust and engine grease. lol

Anyone else get the feeling that your neighbors think you're crazy when you literally spend the entire day cleaning your car? Or run a California duster over it every time you park for the night?

I KNOW mine do. My neighbor came over and told me so. He said "geesh, wasn't t clean yesterday?!". My instructor told me to stop cleaning it- it'll fall apart, a similar effect to how it rains after you wash it. :)

But what about the part with the California duster BEFORE you leave anywhere, even out for milk?

Only when it's the third day of a long weekend of cleaning and the interior is just about finished and I'm about to start the exterior. 65 people town so I get noticed

4Runner is looking good Mike... surprised carpet cleaner was able to clean it that well.

I cleaned bird poop off the Honda. And replaced some broken clips on the tail lights of the GTO the other day. That is all.

Thanks. Yeah, I've got the Bissell ProHeat 2x and it is hands down the best one I've ever used. I used the fiber cleansing formula which I've now found works better than the pet stain stuff. Doesn't smell as weird either. The other machines I've used just didn't work so well.

As for the focus, I just took another photo of it...
