Client just bought it less then a month ago when he contacted me.

He wanted full exterior correction, full interior with carpet extraction.

Interior was not too bad to start with.

Leather and all hard surfaces steamed with my VX5000.

Leather treated with Zaino Z-10

All hard surfaces treated with 1Z einszett Vinyl-Rubber Care & Protectant "Tiefenpfleger."

After a thorough vac, I pretreat all carpet and mats with ultra pac. After a light working in of the pretreat chemicals, by light I mean just brush them in lightly to the fibers in two directions. No need to scrubb.

I filled my Mytee HP60 with Dry Slurry and water. Let it heat up for 15-20 mins while the pretreat chemicals where dwelling. I then purge the extracting tool into a bucket waiting for some very hot water to pass thru.

After extracting each section I set up air movers/fans to dry the carpet as quickly as possbile.

I would let the fans run thru the nite to ensure the carpet was dry.

I was fortunate that Bret could come by the next day to help finish up a few loose ends.

Then it was all about polishing the paint after that.

Here is Bret applying Zaino AIO to the wheels.
