This is true, BUT!!!! You're suppose to do an engine cleaning BEFORE you clean the car due to that overspray occurs on the body of the car when cleaning the engine. Thus, now all your work cleaning the body of the car went to waste and you'll have to re-clean the car to get the overspray off.

I have a convertible Astra F from 1996 and the gear shifter and the handbrake looked awful as well. Replacing them is quite easy and you can buy genuine leather replacements for dirt cheap. Thats a one evening project and it makes the interior look beautiful especially with all the hard work you put in it already.

This car isn't as dirty as my brothers Subaru Imprezza. His car isn't filthy inside, it's diabolically filthy inside. But all his cars have been like that. I detailed one of his cars when he and his wife went to Europe. Just the vacuuming alone filled the vacuum three times and I got $50 in lose change out of it. There was crayon on the velour seats, pet hair everywhere, leaves, grass, broken kids toys, fast food wrappers everything. Even when I drove his car home to my place before cleaning it I had to wipe the gauge cluster as it was so thickly covered in dirt and muck I couldn't read the speedometer. That's why it so great to see someone detail a car that is really dirty not the majority of cars in these detailing videos with a speck of dust inside being labeled as filthy.

1. You should use gloves. You are all about cleaning and protecting the vehicle but what about your skin? 2. The APC and magic sponge will destroy the leather on the steering wheel and leather in general. Magic Sponge takes away the top coat on leather almost like sanding. Then the grease from your hands over the time will go into the stearingwheel and make it harder to clean. If you just use the Rupes L301 on the steering wheel with a microfibertowel or a leather brusk and it will become cleaned and protected without being slippery. But it became quite an transformation :)

I like your methods. I used to own my own detailing service. What I would do for interiors is use a diluted cleaner, a detail brush, and an air compressor. Spray the (in this case) dashboard and instrumentation, scrub lightly with the brush and then take a rag and spray the air compressor over everything and wipe and dry simultaneously. Pretty quick process and the brush gets into every nook and cranny and the air compressor would blow out/dry anything in a very tight space. This method has never failed me. I would not use armor all, just the cleaning would look like it did from the factory. Besides, most newer vehicles recommend NOT using armor all on them (it ruins the finish).

I’d argue that it’s the simple tech that makes it a good car. Bearing in mind, it’s on original engine and gearbox, has 275,000 miles on it, does 60mpg is reliable and £30 to tax. In my opinion, it’s the definition of a great car from a transportation point of view.

The astra interior choice of textiles for seats and door cards is so superior to today's 'its got to be all cheap, dark hard nasty plastic' interiors and carpets that are a joke. Modern cars are horrible inside. They all seem to have consigned to concept of 'upholstery' to the dustbin. Bring back velour!! In fact my 2007 Mégane is horrible in comparison. Nasty seat material.

Instead of messing around with the marker you could have bought a new shifter and handbrake gaitor made from real leather for about £15. If you don't mind fake leather, you could get them for half of that. Replacing them makes a huge difference in appearance, because they're usually the most worn down parts of the interior.

Personally i use a liquid black shoe polish for discoloured and cracked handbrake and gear stick covers. I find that it works better than a marker pen. Just thought i would let you know.

One last thing, instead of hanging an air freshener on the mirror to mask or cover up a smell, you should use an Ozone Machine for 30 minutes and that will remove any and all smells in the car. then you don't have to use any heavy smelling fresheners.

Also another key detail point when cleaning the glass, is to use a clay bar on the glass, as well. this removes the containments, like on the body, off the glass and gives the glass a perfect shine through.

You could of done a better vacuuming and carpet cleaning if you would have just taken out the front seats. They're easy to remove by using a simple socket and wrench. Then you could have gotten everything, everywhere including deep inside between the center console and the seats. Plus shampooing the carpets would be easier and more effective as well.

you half assed a lot of places. spray resolve all over, let soak then wipe down....not doing it by spraying on rag then on the headliner. bad technique. and you only cleaned the interior but added no dressing to protect it. the cleaner is not a protectant. you needed to add something like armor all. and in the corner you didnt wipe all the glass cleaner.

Actually it does... of you use your vehicle as a basic form a transportation, and use it alot, and usually too busy and or tired to clean it.. high miles will show more signs of filth and smells inside of a car.. if he used the vehicle 10 days out of the month, you think itll get very filthy? No.. you must use it a lot and neglect it, to get serious grime into the cracks.

Honestly, you did a pretty nice job on the interior, one thing I would have done differently would probably be to take out as much as I could out of the car (e.g. seats, carpet) which would've made things a lot easier and more thorough. Other than that, Great work Torque Steer!
