      Spent a couple of hours on the M today. The engine bay was really bugging me.

      Not bad for 130K but not great either.

      I think I found the vaguely funky smell when first kicking the AC on. I am sure it needs a cabin filter but this probably isnt helping.

      Someone is missing a shoelace and a Little Ceasers wrapper etc.

      Off came 90% of the plastic, I was too tired to deal with the rain tray piece.

      A bunch of vacuuming, scrubbing etc later...

      I didn't cover anything since I just used the hose and not the pressure washer. The plastics and rubber I scrubbed and then finished with Aerospace 303, which I am really coming to like. Im curious to see how it holds up and how it is with dust.

      Looks good, sir.

      FYI, I just ordered some of this:



      And, assuming I can get the Box functional again, I'd be down to try it out. It's allegedly an all in one product that does a nice job.

      as a jeep owner, I should purchase stock in 303. I love the stuff, although I find it to be a touch too shiny on certain plastics. I think it holds up and protects very well and only wish it was a bit cheaper. A little goes a long way, but I have a loooong way to go on the JKU

      Yeah, I finally broke down and bought some. Im really curious if it ends up being 'sticky' to dust like allot products seem to be.

      In my experience it's much better about being dust repellent, it just doesn't last as long. I think that's a fair trade off for the lack of greasiness compared to most plastic products.

      I think he shall now be known as HyundaiRoss. If only I had the power to change usernames. Psst... hey, mods. Do it.

      The engine cleanup looks good. I tried 303 on my car, and it's not bad. Meguiar's Natural Shine seems to work a little better and has zero residue or dust accumulation. Just make sure you buff it off a bit after application.



      I'm not sure if they're made of the same material, but if your dash ever 'sweats' in direct sunlight, I think I found a solution. I have no idea why it was doing this other than maybe a buildup of various dash protectants, so I tried some Zymol leather cleaner and then reapplied the Meguiar's. So far, so good.

      I thought about it but the cleaner I have doesnt make allot of pressure so its not really suited to it.

      It is sort of strange but the M and G share very little materials wise. Your interior looks fantastic.

      I discovered a couple days ago I need to re-steam some areas of my leather, not to mention the carpets.

      I wonder if the PO used to use a lot of hand lotion. That tends to wear labels prematurely, and it's not like that's a high-use item.

      I do wonder how easy it'd be to retrofit ass vents from the M into my car. I really wish it had them. The switch size looks to be the same as my seat heater switches, and I could probably wire up some CPU cooling fans under the seats... hmmm. That might just be a bit too ghetto though, even for my car.

      I've never steamed leather before, but the passenger seat base is a bit flat/rough looking. Would that help?

      are there any other affordable pressure washers that might be able to handle that sort of thing?
      i looked up the one you posted earlier and it seems fair, looks like they get expensive pretty quick though...

      i may have to hit you up for that later this summer, id really like to get more into this sort of stuff

      I can confirm that the 16Volt Griot's Garage clinic is well worth the effort. I thought the interior of the Miata was clean, until he started pulling out the cleaners.

      At least Griot's seemed to like it as they picked up my Instagram of our Memorial Day 930/Miata shenanigans

      Yeah, in my expierence thus far there are 2-3 basic types of steam 'machines'/'cleaners'. Really depends on what you want to do with it.

      Let me know, I am always down to help.

      In no way shape or form did you think that interior was clean.
