    That is a problem for many car owners who just don't give a ****, how could you let something you own get that disgusting. A++ on the detail job interior pretty much came out brand new.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate it.

    I don't think I mentioned it here but I got Selene for free from her PO. So, I guess that initial clean-up was me working off what I didn't pay for her, haha.

    I try to keep her clean now. About a month ago I had her detailed by someone, they didn't do amazing but they had a steam cleaner which I don't have. The second and third pictures in post #6 of this thread are of that. They got the floor mats and seats nice and clean though, which is what I really wanted.

    It's nice having the liquid wrap because I can take her through automatic car washes without it scratching the "paint", haha.

    Even if the car was free, I think handing the car over with trash still in it is uncalled for in my opinion.

    Nevertheless, very good job on the before and after.

    Selene ($0) and my Chevy Cavalier named Dana ($400) were both handed over to me still dirty, haha. I know both of their POs and there's no hard feelings about it. I was gonna clean the devil out of them anyway. As someone mentioned above, some people just don't take care of their cars. They're just things to transport them from A to B

    Anyway, I'm now glad I kept Selene's winter tires on, because we're supposed to get a crippling snowstorm on Tuesday. Bring it on!

    Someone did this to my car and didn't even leave an "I'm sorry I ruined part of your car thus making it illegal to drive" note.

    I agree she did a helluva job on the inside. It's beautiful.
    When I cleaned out the trunk of my 5th gen Accord, there was a 15 pack of ice cold Budweiser in there that the PO forgot to remove. That alone made it worth cleaning up.:favorites13: My 6th gen had the main serpentine belt in there along with a machinists precision block that I had to help him remove. At least he left me 2 pairs of reading glasses and a pair of sunglasses.

    nice and clean. Mines a daily beater but one day I hope to restore it to the former glory.
