2014 Dodge Ram 1500 - Exterior/Interior Detail
« on: August 31, 2014, 10:19:28 PM »
This weekend I performed an Exterior Protection Detail along with a Premium Interior Detail on a friends 2014 Dodge Ram 1500. The owner was looking to get his truck cleaned up and prepped for winter. Overall the vehicle was in fantastic condition (Most of the "daily" drivers I get are dirty to the point of disgusting) which made it pleasant to work on.

Process

Exterior:
Wheels: Griots Garage Heavy Duty Wheel Cleaner with various brushes
Tires: Zep Formula 505 Cleaner & Degreaser
Wheel Wells: Zep Citrus Cleaner (4:1)
Pre-wash: CG Citrus Wash & Gloss via foam cannon
Wash: CG Citrus Wash & Gloss via 2BM & Wool Wash Mitt
Decontamination: Carpro Trix
Dry: Waffle Weave Towels
Paint Protection: Carpro Reload
Tire Dressing: Carpro Perl
Trim Dressing: Carpro Perl
Glass: Stoner Invisible Glass with Rain Repellent via Glass Towel
Exhaust Polishing: P21s Polishing Soap

Interior:
Vacuum: Shop Vac
Trim & Door Jams: Steam cleaned
Leather: Sonax Leather Foam
Vinyl / Plastic: DP Interior Surface Protectant
Glass: Sonax Clear Glass via Glass Towel

Total Time: 5 Hours

Great work man. It's nice to see what these brand new models_should_ look like off the dealer lot.

I might have to try and replicate this on my Ram! The darn hose at one of those coin washes scratched my hood because my friend wasn't paying attention when I told him to hold it above the paint as I tried to reach across. Hopefully all that's needed is some good wax and buffing.
