WJ Jeep Rejuv.

hey guys, just wanted to post up pics of a recent clean up im doing on my girlfriends families car I am trying to sell for them. Poor jeep was driven by a high school girl for a few years so the normal interior and exterior beat up was taken to an extreme. But all mechanical things are kep up fairly well as their dad helped with that end. After 2 busy days I was able to see the difference and was happy with what I saw.

Process:
-2 bucket wash
-Iron decon bath
-clay bar
-tape up
-wet-sanding/polish, IPA wipe down between polish steps
-Sand/Paint parts
-Seal all part, glass/paint, headlights, plastics
-Interior pre vac
-Knock everything out of cracks and crevices
-Interior plastic wipedown
-Vac again
-Dress interior surfaces
-Final Vac/look over
-Last wash
-Done

Pre-Inspection





Faded Wiper Blades



Water Spots on all windows



Nasty interior











Egg in speaker grate



This was in every crevice





Yes....spider webs in door pockets



Rear wiper blade faded



This was fun, scrape down side from pulling into garage.







Interior not horrible, but not great





Pine tree fun

Re: WJ Jeep Rejuv.

No doubt you've added $$$'s to the Jeep by doing that, the front bumper will finish it off nicely.

How the heck did a egg end up in the speaker grill though!?!

Re: WJ Jeep Rejuv.

Very well done. The interior looks like you took it out of another car now that it is so clean. I agree with Marty, you for sure added money back into it with a clean that dramatic.

Re: WJ Jeep Rejuv.

Job well done! Literally looks like a different car. Nice work on that scratch! What is it with girls and not keeping their WJs clean. My ex's WJ, no shit, was worse then that. Needless to say, it was a reason we ended lol.

Re: WJ Jeep Rejuv.

I'll never understand why people can't take a few minutes here and there to at least clean up after themselves. If you spill something in the cup holder, wash it. If you got something on the console, wipe it up when you get wherever you're going...simple $hit!

Great job dude...I've done a few that were as lovely as that mess...it's no fun, but the difference it makes is huge. No doubt they will get more for that Jeep now. Significantly more.

Yeah think im gunna take it to the next level and sand and paint all the exterior plastic to give it that final look. And that egg ended up in the speaker when the car got egged downtown cause no one in our town has class haha. Was fun to take out of there with a toothbrush, took like an hour alone for that.

I hope that added value, it really is a different vehicle all cleaned up, and changed with painting and updating part of it. Really a steal for someone at this point if they know how to wrench.

Im with ya, simple cleaning each time when you get in and out will hel pin the long run. But ill let people ruin their cars as much as they want cause that is how I make my cash : ) haha. Thanks for the props though, fingers crossed on more cash!
