got a question for you guru's here... i picked up a truck, for uber cheap, but its got its downfalls.
biggest one is the interior. its a 16 year old truck, and its interior is there, but dirty as a 16 year old truck can be.
previous owner (neighbor) had 3 yellow labs ride in it, so there is hair EVERYWHERE. and carpets are full of stains, coffee mostly almost to the point where I am thinking of taking the whole interior apart and replacing it with better looking carpet. but in case I can't how can i get all this crap out? I would post a pic, but it would make some of you cry.
See this thread about my Miata. 1991 convertible that had never been detailed on the inside? Fun.
I removed the seats, used Tuff Stuff with brushes and a Bissell Little Green on seats and carpet. Looks great now!

If you want to purchase a machine to do the job, look up dry-vapor steamers. Best job, hands down, no ifs, ands, or buts. (it's what we use)
If you don't want to spend a lot of money, grab a shop vac, purple power concentrate, and some different size brushes. Mix the purple power 1 part to 3 parts water, spray it down, scrub hard, suck it dry. You can spray it in cup holders, on plastic, and vinyl.
For the pet hair, buy one of these. It's like magic.

Ask me any detailing questions you might have
on my 01 jetta wolfie i used a 50% tide and water, scrub both ways with a sponge, suck it dry as possible with a vac, summer sun or several fans will do the rest. i recently traded this car and the very light tan upolstery looked NEW, i start on the roof down doing everything, its cheap and does a fantastic job but several hours will be consumed, car smells great too, unless you smoke in it!!
