I have "mocha" carpet in my car and would like to do a thourough cleaning on it. I dont' have any real stains, but I'd like to get it back to "as new" as I can. Does anyone know of any good cleaners and maybe vacuum that I can use to shampoo the carpet?

Thanks,

Spray this on to the carpet. Massage it in with a soft brush, then vacuum the liquid up with a wet vac. Works like a charm. Might have to let the mats dry for a while as they are usually still a bit damp. Throwing them in the hot sun helps.
Good Luck. Mocca mats, you have to post pictures, you have me curious.

Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner (APC) works well also.

BTW, nice SHO. I used to have a dark emerald green 93 SHO. It was a really nice sedan. It surprised many people!

You recommend this for the entire carpet and not just the mats?

Mocha is just a tan color...

You can use that setup on all the carpet. For a first go at it, I would do all the carpet. Then in the future you can just do what is needed. Awsome color interior. Reminds me of an old, old benz my grandpa had. Wow, that car has some juice:bow . Looks like you road race it too. Awsome bro.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Yeah, the car does have a little bit of power. I'm running more boost than I did in my dyno and I may even throw on a smaller pulley for 15 - 16 PSI. I do take the car out road racing. In fact, I was invited to race on Friday with SCR Performance here in CO!

What brand of windshield screen is that in the picture?

Thanks.

I don't quite remember. Next time I'm in the garage, I'll take a look. I have not run it on the car in a few years because it doesn't look to great with the A-pillar gauge pod. I loved it when I could actually use it though.
