WJ Jeep Rejuv.

Hey guys, thought I'd post up a thread to a detail I finished up before I headed to the Virgin Islands. Was a heavy one but in the end it came out great, and the car is actually for sale on this site for any of those interested perhaps.

enjoy!

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

cont again.. haha

Dash cleaned and dressed





Final glamour shot with my jeep making a cameo



Found a new front bumper at 50 local so that nasty one will be gone. And plan to sand and paint the side plastics and that should really make it come through as well.

Thanks for looking looking through the long write up everyone!
