Interior wash

I recently got hold of an used pressure wash (yeah!). It's very therapeutic to use. :)

I had enough of that old, dirty interior and decided to remove the seats and mats. And gave it a good, thorough wash!

Interior wash
1) remove the seats, mats and panels. 2) wash. 3) dry.

I love the simplicity of these older designs. And the rubber plugs we can remove to let the water drain! :)
After hitting with the pressure wash, I dried most of it with a microfiber cloth and finished with compressed air.

I still want to remove some local grease/glue to make the best of the situation.

Pressure wash
Too bad I don't have a "before" shot. I'm not sure those glue tapes are OEM but I'm going to remove and clean them, especially since I'm considering NOT putting the mats back on

I'm considering having just some rubber mats in the foot wells. I do have the original mats and I will also pressure wash them (for "science" purposes) but I don't think I will use them. I also saw some photos of people who applied "bed liner". I do like the look and practicality of it but I'm still not committed to it.

Bed liner
Example of bed liner in boot. I do like to look but I'll have to search a bit more.

Hi Octavio,

thank you for your message and sorry about my reply delay! I didn't notice I had "unapproved" comments but hopefully I've changed that setting and also added a feature to notify about new comments so it doesn't happen again ;)

I hope you manage to convert your Samurai. Please share your achievements! I would love to see those and learn from them.
