Don't know if you know but those plastic pads on the back of the back seats take the load cover when the seats are flat and there are clips in the roof for the dog guard

Nice tidy motor that! I've got the E90 based Alpina D3 so will follow this with interest.

I've not been brave enough to foam and wet the engine bay so did it with damp cloths! Seems your missing the under bonnet sound/fire protection sheet unless it was removed for cleaning.

Look forward to the updates.

I was going to say the same but if you look at the "foamed" shot of the engine bay...

Well spotted! When I cleaned mine it must have shrunk as it doesm't seem to clip in as nicely as it originally did!

That looks amazing, the finish is extremely sharp! Beading is mega too, I think I may have to get some DSW applied!

Cheers mate

Very happy with the results, especially as all done by hand - don't have a polisher as yet

UPDATE TIME!

Round 2 - Interior Deep Clean

Iím going to apologise in advance for the pony pictures, the sun was a pain all day but at least it was dry I was also concerned the weather could turn so tried to crack on.

Monday, after recent crap weather in the North East I finally got a break to get cracking on Bettyís interior.

Work commenced at 10:30 and I was done by 5, so a full day at it and I still didnít quite get it complete!

Out came the tools and I started removing the seats, front and rears came out a doddle.

4 T45 bolts through the floor and one on the side of the seat frame to unbolt the seatbelt. Tilt the seat back and remove the electrical connector then theyíre out







The trusty Henry came out to tackle the initial vacuum, considering the interior had never been out based off the original thread lock on various bolts it wasnít too bad.







And after a thorough vacuum







I tackled the plastics, door cards, trims and centre console next with Autoglanz Infinite and a selection of various brushes to agitate and remove years of grime.



After these had been wiped clean I move onto the wet work for the interior carpets, with power tools





Again Autoglanz Infinite was used here as the detergent to rid the carpets of stains and ingrained dirt, worked with the Makita drill then extracted with George. Looking much better









I then tackled the seats while they were out of the car with Gliptone Intensive leather cleaner. Worked into the seats, agitated with a nail brush and Sonax upholstery brush then wiped away with a damp Microfibre. Iím not happy with these after the initial clean, itís removed the majority of the dirt and shine but I think they have more to give so Iíll be doing them again.





Total time spent so far - 8 hours

Better pictures next time...... thatís a promise!

More to come

Cheers

Matty

Great work!

Don’t bemoan the sun shining ! We’ll put up with a bit of glare, you enjoy the treat!

Do you know the spit arm rest and all but the rear vents are extra cost options?
Mine doesn’t have them
