Default Ultra Deep Bonneville Cleaning

Well since we are making the trip to Dans meet on saturday we decided to clean the Bonnie up a little and one thing lead to another.

At first we wanted to just vacuum under the seats, but the center console was had crap in the cracks so we took it apart and took the rest out to make vacuuming the rest of the carpet easier.

Well then it looked like it wouldn't take much to just take the carpet all the way out to clean it, so that came out too.

Once the carpet was all out I started vacuuming it all, but it wasn't too easy. . . . .

Dawnn seemed to have an easier time vacuuming it though.

In the end we had found $2.66 several pens and business cards from previous owners and some other random crap. (Yes we found the oil cap under the drivers side seat)


Its supposed to rain most of the day tomorrow but stop around 5pm so hopefully we can get the outside detailed before the trip, and I dont plan on taking ANYTHING off on the outside of the car

All I found when I did mine was something like 32 cents and some candy wrappers.

Dude, you had the vacuum set a bit to high, you sucked the carpet right out of the car.

The reason you didn't find any more than 32 is because the previous owner spent all their change on candy. . . . .

Lol when I cleaned out under my rear seat I found 10, bubble gum, and candy wrappers. Guess I didn't get as lucky as you.

We keep getting flash SNOW storms up here, so no deep cleaning for me yet, she needs it, but I dont want to get into that and have it snow again...lol. I think the most I've ever found in a vehicle was when I took the dash apart in my Explorer, there was a $20 bill wrapped around the inside of the heat vent...not sure how the hell it got there...but it made it worth it
