Default Detailed - 2005 GMC Envoy (trashed interior)

I do a couple cars a week (usually just quick interior with wash/polish) but sometimes my family members ask me to do their cars. This is my uncles 2005 GMC envoy (110,000 miles). He owns greenhouses/a dog so its used for everything, hauling plants, dog carrier, junk carrier, lol. He was leaving for Ohio and wanted it clean for the ride with his wife. I got the car Thursday morning and finished Friday night. My main concentration was on the carpets/interior as they was the the worst. The exterior just got the quick wash (no polishing).

From the looks of that I'd say the job took

Two bucket wash with Surf City Pacific Blue Wash and Wax (was out of Duragloss 901)
Surf City Road Trip on front end and rockers (This stuff is awesome)
Meguiars APC (4:1) on wheel wells,frame, tires and door jambs

Interior
Vacuum with shop vac (6hp), this took the longest. Was vacuuming, brusing, vacuuming, brushing...
Carpet/seats spots treated with 303 carpet cleaner
Carpets/seats scrubbed with a mix of Meguiars APC (4 ounces) and Oxy Brite (1-2 tablespoons)
"Extracted" with the BLGM (I highly suggest this to any weekend detailer, amazing at how much stuff is pulled out, also get the heated version)
All interior panels scrubbed with Meguiars APC (4:1)
All interior panels protected with 303.

Sound right?

Man I wish I had my own sub-forum. I bet those Cheetos tasted good, the vintage ones always do. Just like Hot Fries, open the bag and leave it sit for a week opened, the fries get like 10 times hotter.

What kinda vacuum extension do you use to clean out the hard to reach places? I've detailed my XJ quite a few times but it's always difficult to get the section of carpet between the front seats and the center console, even when using that small tube looking extension. Nice work though.
