    Sister-in-Law's Buick After pics inside (new after pic..rear floor)

    I’m cleaning my sister-in-law’s Buick Park Avenue for her. My wife brought it home for me today, and it was waiting for me after work. When I got home, she looked at me and asks: “It’s bad, isn’t it?” I just looked at her, and she knew. Let me put it to you this way…In the past three hours, I had to scrub the floor mats twice each and the tires/rims three times each. I had to go to the self-serve wash to use the high pressure on the tires/wheels and engine. Even so, I had to scrub the tires AGAIN with GREASED LIGHTNING, and go over the rims AGAIN with Meg’s Gold Class Instant Wheel Cleaner (strong stuff, let me tell you), and a terry cloth rag. Even after being sprayed with A to Z and hit with the pressure sprayer, the tires still turned brown almost instantly after I sprayed then with the Greased Lightning.

    I hosed the engine with full strength Simple Green and hit it with the pressure washer at the self-serve bay. After the car wash, I brought the car back to the house where I finished washing the wheels/rims, the floor mats and the door jambs. I’m about ready for bed since I have to work early tomorrow, but I’ll leave you with a few before pics:

    Looks pretty bad, but I have feeling whe you are done it will look like new. By the I hear sand balster work well for cleaning rims.

    Cars that are that dirty usually result in having a very happy customer. I love challenges like that!

    Good luck!

    I had to work over tonight, so I didn't get a hance to do too much except to scrub the floor mats for the third time. Even after scrubbing, then rinsing with a hard spray from the hose twice, I still pulled A TON of dirt out of the mats with the bissel.

    I sprayed down the carpeting with a Woolite/oxy mix, and I'm letting it work overnight. Tomorrow morning, I'll start ont he interior (the leather is a mess too).
