Glad to see this being continued. Pretty sure a few of the pics of the previous work that were not posted prior.

Question on the carpet cleaning video, could you provide a little more detail on how you incorporated the steam machine in the process?

Thanks.

Hi Neil,

I bought a really cheap steam cleaner. But, if basically blows out very hot steam and helps break down stains and such. It's other purpose is sanitizing.

I still have a bit of a musty smell that I've not been able to remove. It's in the carpets for sure - not the head liner. Luke tipped me off to Ozium but that did not work - it's for odor in the air.

My next thing to try is baking soda.

So, you sprayed it with the carpet cleaner, maybe a little dwell time, then hit it with the steam, and then sucked it all up with the carpet machine, is that about right?

I had my aluminium ashtray door sandblasted and then used the special aluminium primer (forgot what it's called? Kryozinc or something...) and then refinished it.

No, first I sprayed resolve on. Then a scrubed my ass off with a scub brush. Then used a microfiber towel with hot water and scrubed the crap out of it. I followed that buy using the carpet machine to such the water out. Last step was steam cleaner to get a few deeper stains out and sanitize

I can only tell you that I use a $10k ultrasonic cleaner as one part of the process.

zinc chromate primer

For mission critical use a conversion coating after alumiprep



OK my brain is fried now

Go to Wal Mart and buy some carpet cleaning powder. You sprinkle it over a smelly carpet, let it sit a little while and then vacuum it up. It's a cheap solution that might do the trick. I've seen it help remove some pretty... dank smells.

What is the finish you put on the parts? Like is it just a matte black paint or is it a rubberized paint? I can understand you do a lot of expensive things to the parts in your process and I'm not asking how you apply anything. Just the finish material.

Hi Joe,

The finish is not a rubberized coating. I've tried a few and they worked OK but they scratch easy and most would be worried about long term effects.

The industry is accepting good match to OEM (color and sheen) non rubberized finishes.

How about a tutorial on reassembling the switches. Did you make a tool to hold the springs and detents in place? Any pics of it?

I've done about 20 of them using feeler gauges with a small hole to hold the detents but I'm always interested in seeing how someone else did it.
