Introduction: Car Cleaning OVERKILL
So I had really dirty car and I decided to go commando on it. This is what i came through.
Step 1: Removing Every Seat and Carpet
First things first. I took out every seat. Seats were discustingly dirty. They were soaked in fat, oil, vomit kind of stuff. After taking back seat i found dead mouse. Lots of old money from Lithuania was found. One of the seats was stuck so i used some WD-40 to loosen things up.
Step 2: Cleaning Car Inside
The car was filled with dust, sand, mice, rust, oily things. Then i decided to go commando. I took garden hose and started spraying water to the inside. First try was just to make ir clean enough to work on it. I opened all caps for water to escape. To clean oil i used dish soap and a brush. Then every thing was clean i moved on to carpets. P. S. Firewall was destroyed
Step 3: Cleaning the Carpets
I cleaned the carpets with dish soap to help me to wash all the fat that was splattered. I brushed it hard to make soap soaked really good. After brushing, rinsed out all dust ant sand that was left in the car. After drying i brushed it again to make sure there is no grass-hay left.
You can see the difference between before cleaning and after. It's priceless to go from 0 to 100 REAL QUICK :D
Step 5: Putting It Back Together
To put every thing back was really easy but tricky. The hardest part was coming
Step 6: Panel and Door Cleaning
The hardest part is to clean panels real shiny. I to clean panels i used panel polisher or shiner (I can't remember the name). Doors were cleaned with soapy water and that shiner spray. Central column panel was cleaned with water and panel spray.
Step 7: Vacuuming
I vacuumed every thing on that car. It was very hard to do because of the sand that was left. But carpets look clean
Step 8: Washing the Car
Last but not least I washed the car and waxed it. It looked great.
Step 9: Conclusion
If you want to make your really dirty car to look and smell good. Do it.
If you are lazy enough you are going to end up with a car without insides
This method is very time consuming
Seats are drying long time

The car was used in a country, for a dirty workers, building materials, greasy things. The work was done in about 4 days. 1 day taking every thing out. 2 day washing everything out. 3 day drying. 4 day putting it back together.
