Look really good....
Just curious....do you ever clean the seat belts? Sometimes with everyday use the fabric strap material gets really nasty......

Someone was driving around with a dead cat in their car and didn't notice? :?

awesome, if only I could afford that $900 for the mytee for personal use! just cant justify it yet.

on average when using it how long does it take seats and carpet to dry? I would assume it depends on how dirty either are and how slow you go across the fabric/carpet?

Yes, either by using a pressure washer. Or a steam cleaner. For these belts I am going to be using a steam cleaner since they're made into the seat. If they were like the newer trucks I would just clamp them off and pressure wash them outside the vehicle. Let it dry for an hour and then it's good to go. Use a degreaser. Alternatively you can just spray into a towel and scrub, but I think a steamer or pressure washer does a better job.

It was the customers spare vehicle and they had gotten groceries with it and the cat climbed inside while they were unloading groceries and didn't notice until a week later where the cat had wound up. They thought it ran away. :(

The Mytee 8070 is expensive. But it saves me about 1hr-2hr per job. I used to use a little BIssel Proheat Spot Extractor. And it typically takes between 1-4 hours if warm weather. If colder weather it make take 24-48 hours. Running the heater inside the vehicle and letting it set for an hour goes along way in ensuring the seats and carpet are fully dry. This unit has 120" of water lift, so it doesn't really soak the fabrics down like less powerful units.

makes a lot of sense I was wondering how detailers were keeping the turn around times down. have a bissel pro heat little green (the one you pour hot water in) I give it two thumbs down lol. you of course are spot on with dry time too because it took a good 24hrs for those seats to dry haha

It's been awhile since I posted... I finished up on the interior and have been driving it for a month now. I've been traveling to install ceramic coatings for people. :P So it got a little dirty again. Again, I cleaned the plastics with LA's Totally Awesome. If the vehicle wasn't as dirty I would've cleaned it with a diluted APC like Meguiar's APC or Optimum Power Clean. I also didn't put any type of protectant/shine on the plastics. I work in a body shop, so I can't have any silicones or greases on my hands when i'm working. If I was going to do this for a customer i'd use 303 Vinyl Protectant it's non greasy, and restores a like new apperance to the plastic.

Anyway, the next step is to do some paint correction on the truck. I will make a tutorial/guide on that as well...

Nice clean. I didn't take my seats out. My bissel is small enough to get in all the little places. My truck was owne by an industrial plumber who installed warehouse fire sprinklers. The thing was dirty. I thought I had a black interior but after a thorough clean it turns out it is grey

That's sort of funny "thought it was black but turns out it is grey"

Nice job hallmark, question though. you don't suppose a pressure washer will harm the seat belts do you? I have one of those gas powered 2800psi or something like that.

If you're using the white tip, no it shouldn't harm the seat belt. Just be mindful of how close you're getting to the fabric. But i've been cleaning seat belts this way for 5+ years now and haven't had an issue yet.
