time and patience are key when removing smoke. the hardest part is removing the bacteria that is left behind. one thing you can do to help remove the smell is changing out your cabin air filter. other than that, pm me any specific questions and ill try to help you out

Finished up my audio install a few days ago. installed a kicker 11hs8 hideaway powered sub under the driver seat and a kicker dx400.4 amp under the passenger seat to go along with my already installed kicker 6.5' & 4" door speakers and pioneer fh-x700bt head unit. while I had the interior out i took the time to deep clean every single piece.

I got sick and tired of seeing my car so dirty outside and clean inside. It has been so cold this winter that I haven't washed it in months since it was warm outside. It was 48° and windy this morning but, I got my ass out there and did a quick wash. Snapped some pics with my phone after I was done. After that I ran inside to thaw my hands out under hot water.

Yes I do but I also hate it cause I notice every single imperfection, scratch, and ding while washing it.
