Default Interior cleanup/refresh no 56k...

So I did the old "take this job and shove it..." the other day...got some time off, paid no less! Bonus coming in a few days and with savings can afford some time off and to put some long needed attention into the car...

Started today pulling the Vaders, vacuuming and leatherique...LOL from a GB Obioban handled about 3 years ago! Going to let them sit overnight while being kept warm..

Updates as I progress but would appreciate any input/tips along the way!

(Other items planned in down time...Dr Vanos Stage 1, tint removal/replacement, body work for dings and possible respray of trunk/hood, TCKline SA, rtabs/all bushings and more....)

Starting off...



armrest


bolster


Vaders out...how easy! Not so much as heavy as they are bulky.


Vacuumed...


Leatherique applied to rears...


Warming up interior...


Leatherique...


Floormats done with Little Green..

I would highly advise against using leatherique on your alcantara...

Default Results/after pics

Overall, loved the leatherique. Process is simple and straightforward. Leather feels much more supple and comfortable. Though I'd hoped for better results, I was not expecting miracles and should have done this long ago, and made it a recurring process.

The Little Green works fantastically. Took virtually every stain out in very short order. Also leaves a very nice scent!

Interior


Drivers side


Passenger (can't get rid of the damn burn mark in back...)


Center


Armrest...certainly did clean it but the wear won out...


Door card...was filthy prior


Rear


Front...lol, there's a new mod added in here..
