Default Some pics of an 8-hour cleaning project

This is my friend's Camry with 400,000 miles on it. Its been passed through like 7 people in his family. He doesn't have money for a new car and it was falling apart, so I did my best to put it back together, but due to time constraints I was only allowed 8 hours for the cleaning/detailing portion of it. Spent a good 3 days on the mechanics of it. He had living and growing things under some of this stuff. I wish I had had the time to rip the seats and carpet out and just pressure wash everything. Here's the before and after shots.

Before:

<br>
the mark in the middle is from where i swiped it with my finger, good half inch of grime on it.










<br>
After:
Three cans of degreaser later

I have no idea, it drove me crazy to even be near it. I am not kidding when I said there was things living in it though. Under his backseat he had these nasty bugs, and there was also this mold/sponge looking thing growing back there. All gone now though.

looks like you did a nice job! I'm not sure how much more into this you can get, but you can make the leather look brand new as well...

unfortunately the leather was pretty shot. all of it was so cracked and dried out from sun that the padding was showing in a lot of spots. so i don't know how much can be redeemed from that

You know what's funny is that when I replaced the transmission fluid chunks of dirt came out and I'm pretty sure it was blocking some leaks because it sprung a few leaks after i put the new stuff in and I had to use an sealant to get it back to normal.
