What are we looking at here?  It's the inside of a 1988 Suzuki Samurai with everything, including the two front seats, stripped out.  You can't strip anything else out unless you start tearing the vehicle apart, piece by piece.

This is the only way to really get a Samurai truly clean.  Samurais were built with removable drain plugs in the metal floor.  You pop the plugs and hose it out.  Then you soap everything up, get out a scrub brush, hose it again, get the spots you missed and then hose it until the water runs clear.  Simple, eh?

We went on a dusty road recently--an extraordinarily dusty road.  The road was the dustiest we've been on in 10 years.  The inside of the Samurai looked like a sand dune made of dust.  It was incredibly filthy.  Sooo....that leaves only one option--strip it to the bone and get it truly clean again.  It's a big job and takes a big chunk of a day.  But once it's clean it will stay clean--provided you don't go on dusty roads.

Many Cheers!  jp
