Dirty Touran Tan/beige Challenge

Hi everyone

Back again with a filthy car for you all, it's a VW Touran

Car came straight from the auction house to me via a regular customer.
The auction valet crew .. I feel sneezed on the dash wiped it with a cloth and just left the rest of the car

Took about a day to get the interior back to a decent standard




Youtube video link below complete with a bit of narration ... well my sarcastic view on the car anyway

I use two

The One in the video is a Karcher Puzzi 10/1

I also have a larger Numatic, I find them a bit cheaper on the spares and robust, the Karcher is pretty new to me so cant comment on reliability

What a turn around!

Watching the wet-vac on the passenger seat is super satisfying

Fantastic job. Some people just shouldn't be allowed to own cars

Jesus how has noone mentioned your PPE?
What the hell was going on to require that beast of ventilated and hardoned PPE

Looks like a great effort though bud..

Although the only problem with someone valeting the car that good is someone trying to buy it will think it's a gem..when really if the inside was that bad so dread to think how it was looked after mechanically lol

Great job, looks almost like flood damage or too many cans of pop exploding inside of the car! I love watching your videos, keep up the good work.

That's very true. Someone is going to look at that and think "Wow, this has been well looked after"

I don't think anyone would actually believe what it looked like before. Just shows what can be rescued if you've got the right skills and equipment.
