I finally Stripped my 80% of my interior
 
I removed all the woodgraind the rear seats, the center console and the compartments under the radio. And i must say it was very disgusting, soo much crums and sticky goe all over the edges if the woodgrain and under the stick shift knob. Tommorrow i will be removing my side door panels and maybe my seats. So where i am is i need to find cleaning material. I want to clean my dash board, woodgrain, the rugs and the console. let me know what to use, thank you.

One product can clean them all no problem. Use the 303 Cleaner and Spot Remover. safely breaks up contamination and won't harm the surface. Works great on carpets, vinyl, plastic and more. It leaves the surface with a nice matte finish, no gloss. The 303 Cleaner and Spot Remover is already diluted, for a better value you can get the 303 Fabric Cleaner, same chemical make up just concentrated version. Its 32oz and you can dilute it up to 10:1 ratio for big savings.

If you want a nice bold finish thats not oily try the 303 Aerospace Protectant. This gives any vinyl, rubber or even leather surface a nice shine with out the excessive gloss. It also protects the surface with UV protection to prevent slow fade. Works great on tires, rubber seals, and looks especially stunning on the casings in the engine.

Let me know if you have any questions about these products or anything related to detailing.

My favorite multipurpose cleaner is P21S Total Auto Wash. This is a citrus based cleaner. The main ingredient is D-limonene which is an oil extract from orange peels. P21S Total Auto Wash has the ability to degrease the worst engine or clean fine fabrics. You can dilute it quite a bit. This is both the strongest and safest multipurpose cleaner I have ever used. The light citrus smell is very pleasant and it does fade quickly leaving no chemical odors behind.

For interior plastics, rubber and vinyl my choices are 303 Aerospace Protectant and Vinylex. The vinylex has a slightly lower shine but both contain UV blockers.

If you have any others questions you know what to do.

303 and P21S are considered Premium line products so the only place you may find them are in higher end automotive specialty stores. I have never seen them in any dealers around me. A high end wheel and accessory shop might be your best best.

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Good Luck!

As Melo Breeze mentioned, the Metro Vac 'n Blo is an excellent choice for a vacuum. It is very powerful, has all the attachments you could imagine, and also doubles up as a blower. It's a must have for any serious detailer.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

George @ DI
