some cleaning progress.

half and half after just the vacuuming

after the vacuuming, the kids and I set up a relay team. I washed all the hard surfaces with soapy water (dish soap, for the degreasing), then my son wiped it all dry, then my daughter hit all the neglected plastics with so SO much shiny maker.

whats not immediately evident in the pictures, is the quantity of dog fur. I had to vacuum once to get all the dirt and chunks, then brush/scrape all the fabrics with a stiff brush to loosen the fur, then vacuum again.

and because the paint is pretty bad, I took a minute polish a little test patch. I taped it off and just rubbed it by hand. came out pretty good. it’s a small car, but the paint work will be a mountainous job

this may have once been a well loved car, but it certainly hasnt been cleaned inside or out in many MANY years.
