Cleaning the FJ?

I was curious as to what everyone uses the clean the interior & exterior of their FJ, and what type of wax is the most popular to keep that shine going.

Re: Cleaning the FJ?

For a very easy to use and inexpensive (not to mention readily available) wax I would suggest Meguires NXT wax.

Griots' Best of Show wax for outside.
Vinylex for all the black stuff and plastics.
I use Griot's Clay Bar to prep the paint before waxing. It's very gentle.

Re: Cleaning the FJ?

I use a leaf blower for the interior and a pressure washer for the exterior.

Griots doesnt actually make any of their own products, most of it is relabeled 3M stuff. All of their products can be found for less money elsewhere.

Re: Cleaning the FJ?

Yes I think a pressure washer is in order here ... =\ normal hose pressure takes forever!

I dont know where toyota says that you can spray it out. I think you took "washable interior" to mean that; it doesnt. There are no drain plugs like in a wrangler to drain the water, plus there is a lot of electrical stuff fairly low so you'd have to be a "hose master". I recommend using a wet towel to get the mud and stuff out. If you decide that you HAVE to hose it out, you should keep the water on the floor, and use a shop vac to get the standing water out.
