Just recently we had the chance to do probably one of the larger cars we have done in a while, a 100 Series Toyota Landcruiser (small tank!).
This Family run about needed some loving to bring it back to its former glory days! Of course as a daily commuter its nothing usual and one of the better ones we have seen over the years.
Below you can see the condition when it arrived to us, and not too bad at all in fact. I do need to mention we would not recommend a light interior or leather for your family run about as kids with crayons and textas amongst the other mess they could possibly create for you!
Paintwork below as can be seen;
Finger Prints evident all over the GPS unit - Touch Screen Unit unfortunately!
(erk! - we are unsure that that was, dirty tissues!)
Drink clearly spilt over the door trims/speaker.
Leather clearly had some sort of water/liquid staining.
We started with a mixture of the 303 Fabric & Vinyl Cleaner in some warm water to clean up the interior trim. Following with a full Interior Shampoo Extraction to clean the beige/tan Fabrics & Carpets using 303 Fabric & Vinyl Cleaner in the Numatic George!
Up next was a complete Rejuvenation to the Leather using the Leatherique Products. This product always surprises us on how much it really changes the look, feel and finish of your leather!

Drivers Seat 50 / 50 Shot
We followed of course doing the whole leather interior and allowing a full day for the Leatherique Oil to pull all the dirt up to the surface for a full clean with the Leatherique Prestine Clean, following with the Duragloss Leather Conditioner to put some natural scent and make the seats soft and supple once again.
With all plastic/vinyl trim we applied 303 Aerospace Protectant to leave a factory style satin/matte finish that is not greasy and also contains SPF40 protection for the Australian Sun.
Exterior Wise the Paint was in reasonable condition. Few light wash marks but nothing too heavy. We opted for Nanolex NanoWax which lies between a light abrasive with cleaners that will brighten and protect the paintwork for up to 6 months and help that pearl metallic flake pop up a bit more giving some depth and clarity to the Pearlescent White Paintwork. Finishing off with a light coat of the Nanolex Premium Spray Sealant for that extra layer of protection!
A few beading shots - very tight beads in areas, but we found more 'sheeting effect' than beading from the Nanolex Nanowax
How long for a job like that? Always amazed by the results that a great retailer can achieve.
