Hyundai Tucson
I obviously have too much spare time on my hands, this is the third vehicle in less than two weeks.

One very grubby Tucson came to me early this week, curtousy of a friend, with lots of urban gunk on the outside and a manky interior.
The first half of the day was spent cleaning out the very dirty interior. I think that some silicon oil had been used on the leather an dash, in a previous valet, causing dirt to stick. It was treated first to some APC(Clean Green) diluted to a weakish level and scrubbed hard with cloths and soft bristle brushes. Then a healthy amount of Collinite #855 to finish it off and give it back some lustre. Dash, door cards and scuff pads got APC then 303 Aerospace. Dirty marks on the carpet were scrubbed out.

Wheels were cleaned with Sonax Extreme and tyres got Megs Gold Class Endurance Gel.

Body work was dirty but only had the odd scratch and moderate swirling. Removed these with Megs Ultimate Compound and finished with Autoglym SRP. Paintwork was then sealed using CG Extreme Top Coat Sealant. Exterior trim, roof racks and colour coded mouldings got a healthy dosing of 303 and Megs Gold Class Trim Detailer to bring the colour back as they were looking a little faded.

A hard days work produced some nice results. It was too dark by the time I had finished so pics were taken the next day(After it had been used to transport the guys family - My excuse for the grass and dirt on the matsBluebiggrin)

Thanks, it took about 12hrs all-in-all, over two days but I only worked for about 1.5hrs the first day.

I wish I could have done more in certain places of the interior but it was so badly stained.

Look great STaX Thumb Seems like you are getting a bit busy over there, is it just word-of-mouth or are you placing ads?

I would rate it at medium. The tougher scratches came out with a heavy polishing foam pad with only a little pressure.

Word of mouth only at the moment. Doing a Focus ST this weekend, it doesn't stop. My back is ruined.
