Cleaned the living he!! outta the stroke today!

Well, with the way work has been lately (working alllllll night, sleeping allllllll day), and me being a 22yr old dad who's gotta entertain not only my son, but the wife aswell when I'm not working I really haven't had ANY time at all to mess with the truck, let alone clean it (sprayed her down with a pressure washer about 3 weeks ago, that's it, haven't cleaned the interior in over a month!)

So today, I dug into it. and took new pics to post (haven't posted any since the new wheels/tires, fender accent flares, king ranch steps, 5" exhaust)

Washed it/pressure washed underneath, polished up the wheels and slapped on some tire-shine, cleaned/waxed all the windows inside, rain-x'd, cleaned/shined up all the interior plastics, conditioned the seats.

Took me a bit, but I finished, and MAN is it clean, hasn't been this clean in a long long time. Next week I'm installing my guages, and claybarring/waxing the entire truck to get out all the little scratches.

Pics: (taken from my t-mobile g1, not bad for a phone)






These are a man with tan leathers best friend!


Yeah, hard to belive because I'm usually a clean freak, but my interior was THAT dirty! I'm never letting it get that way again!


Just a bed full of goodies


Piece of the 3.5" exhaust vs. the new 5"


Merry christmas to me, next weeks project.

Ha, I didn't even wanna do mine, those guages I bought from you are still sitting in the box next to the christmas tree... I'm a lazy man.

I really want a professional detail, but I was quoted at $500 for everything, and I just can't see spending that much to clean my truck when I can do it myself.

As soon as tax money comes, Adam @ first coast diesel performance is getting the truck to do ARP headstuds, the FCD full EGR delete kit, new oil cooler, headgaskets, etc.

Anyone know of a local FL detailer that's reasonable? I want the whole truck claybarred, and buffed, it's got some little scratches that annoy the piss out of me.

I just cleaned mine yesterday also, it was the first time I have cleaned mine since the opening day of bow season and it was full of hunting crap and mud from hunting buddies. lol The only reason I cleaned mine was because we had a freak one day heat wave it was 58 degrees!!! Truck looks great though man!!

Way better than the armorall conditioner. My leather is so soft compaired to all my buddies.

Even had a friend that drives a caddi CTS ask me how I got it so soft, that's a compliment!

lol I detail cars for a livin.. i can feel your pain. That thing looks good and btw a clay bar is not difficult to do.. Just set aside a day and do it in a garage, or shade because you dont want the detail spray to dry up on you. And for the interior protectants... 303 is the way to go
