Detailing Questions

Outbound

I'm just here for the panda
May I suggest seat covers. Clazzio, katzkin, coverking. 🤷‍♂️ :)
Have you seen the prices on those? They sure are proud of them. Especially here in Canada. I'm looking into Katzkin but the nearest installer I can find is a minimum of 4.5 hours away. Haven't got an official quote yet but the ballpark figures I'm seeing is that it would run me $2000+ to do front and rear on my truck.

Add that to the rebuilding I want to do to my front end and other parts and I'm looking at putting $5000 at least into a 15 year old truck. :oops:

I did Clazzio’s in mine. Originally I wanted Katzkins, but the price was a major deterrent. My quotes came in bout $2800.00 the Clazzios came in at $700.

DIY. That’s what I did. eBay has them for 550. Hog ring set was 20 and it took me 8 hours to do. I added seat warmers so you would probably be faster. I did the rear seats one day and the fronts the next. Got plenty of pics if you want some.

How long did you have those in the truck before you traded it?
Word on the street is they cheap out on the ebay kits, and I'm worried about longevity :unsure:

It was a pretty soon after I got it so I’d say over a year and they looked great. I had dogs and teenagers in it lots and they looked new when I traded it in.
I didn’t do 550 ones. I got the outlaw version. Think they were 650 with a eBay special they were running. Much softer than the leather in my Pro.

Hell, 650 is still a killer deal for one of their premium options.

I posted this on .com totally forgetting that we have a detailing thread here. So, copy/paste:

OK, non-Tundra/car but detailing related. Whenever I do either of our vehicles I do it the right way, correct, hand wash, Powerlock, etc. I also am old with a screwed up back so I do it in the garage, it takes all day, and I hurt for 2 days after.

That being said, I also have a 2014 travel trailer that I have never washed or detailed. I'd love to do it right, but currently we are already into out 100+ degree days and I also know that my back can't handle it. So my thinking was something is better than nothing and I'd really like to clean it up a bit. I was thinking (until I can devote a few days in cooler weather to do it right) I would try one of those wash and wax products with a telescoping soft brush. This is what I'm looking at now, any thoughts?
