2008 Chrysler Sebring.

I am not great at before and after pics yet, but I do have a few to show. I don't think I had enough good pics to post in detail jobs forums, and that, along with the fact it was my first time using most of these interior products, I thought this post might fit in with Product Raves. These mostly inexpensive and easy to use products did a really nice job on this car- and it was a mess. Along with all of the stains and general dirt / grime, most of the smoke/nicotine/tar residue came out too. Couldn't do anything about the burns...

Key Meguiar's Products Used:

Exterior:
Professional Clay - Medium
NXT Gen 2.0 Paste Wax
Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner

Interior:
Quik Interior Detailer
Detailer Line D102 Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner (aerosol)
Quik Out Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner (aerosol)
Gold Class Leather Cleaner and Conditioner

Interior Before:

Just so you know, we pulled out the duplicate [IMG] tags in your post.

Now for the important part - that's a fantastic transformation for using just a few, relatively simply products on what was a pretty nasty looking interior! And the reflections in the paint look terrific as well! Nicely done:heelclick1.gif

ugh, that interior is absolutely filthy
after working at a couple dealerships, I guess that does not even surprise me anymore

I can not believe the filth some people live in

The transformation is amazing

Thank you- there's a bit more of a learning curve than I would think to taking good before / after pics & posting them correctly. Plus, I used an iPhone and it was about the 40th day of on/off rain in this area, so a little cloudy. I am going to try to remember to use a real camera in the future, to get better quality pics, and just resize them for web pages.
