Ok, maybe not really. But I don’t know what was worse, the dog hair (I’m already looking at Canvasback cargo liners), or the bugs. The interior probably took a good three hours. I had to vacuum, use a lint roller, vacuum again. A swiffer duster is awesome at getting dust out of all the little crannies.
Exterior detail about six. I did need wax on there anyway, as the water had stopped beading. I gave it a quick once over in NY, the bugs were kept at bay on the drive back by rain in the evening. Still, de-bugging was a pain, those little suckers were everywhere.
I really dislike the look of bug/stone deflector thingies, but I think I’m getting one. The leading edge of the hood has some sizable paint chips, most of them were from before the road trip, though.
I enjoy detailing, so it was time well spent. I find it therapeutic, just me, the DA polisher (trusty old Porter Cable 7424xp), some polishing pads, and a 4Runner. That said, my next car might be white or silver, the blue looks mighty nice clean, but it’s definitely a bit of work!
Next up for the 4Runner, an oil change and tire rotation. I dislike oil changes on this, as removing the skid plates is a bit cumbersome. I may get an aftermarket skid just for the ease of future oil changes.
