Alex is no stranger around here so when he picked up a "new" car to beat around in, he made sure it came to me first to "remove the previous owner" from the car. Just because a car may be cheap and a "beater", doesn't mean it has to look like a trash dumpster. The inside was pretty bad, making me remove the front seats in order to remove all of the food/crumbs/hair/everything. Some stains had been there long enough to actually cause damage to the fibers and Alex was trying to keep the cost down, therefore I didn't go too much further. Once Optimum Carpet and Fabric Clean and Protect had done it's work, I made sure to clean all the hard surfaces with Optimum No Rinse and finished them with Optimum Protectant Plus. I also ran my deodorizer over night to neutralize any smells.
The exterior had quite a few swirls, dents, and scratches so I did the best I could to make sure those defects didn't stand out. All in all, the Basic Detail package is a great way to refresh a car before selling it or shortly after acquiring. Thanks Alex!
