I break my details into 3 Step. Prep Work, interior and exterior. Listed below is my general outline for prep work. I am currently working on the more elaborate version but it is not yet ready. The interior and exterior outline I will post tomrrow if you would like.

the crimped hose not the trigger.

Spray the Wheels with P21S Wheel Cleaner and let sit if dirty. Agitate, rinse &
