1. clay to remove the overspray and any other contaminents then a nice polish, glaze , and sealant to make her look shiny!

2. if its not dyes leather i would use a heavily diluted all purpose cleaner and then be sure to condition it once done otherwise it will dry it really bad

I have a medium grade clay bar that works well for removing overspray. It will remove more than the standard light duty clay bars available. Link is here:

You will want to at least rewax after claying since there wont be any protection left on the car. Personally, I would suggest doing red moose glaze first, then finish off with carnuba moose wax or nattys paste wax.

As for the leather, if its as bad as you say, I would suggest using p21s total auto wash w/ a soft bristled brush. Wipe clean, then treat with poorboys leather stuff :) I used the p21s on the jeep liberty detail I posted a while back and believe me, it really removes some ground in dirt. It'll take a little elbow grease too. And as always, be sure to spot test before going at the seats :)

Yea, you can use the total auto wash on the wheel wells. It is a citrus degreaser that is very versatile. When using it on the seats, you can dilute it a little if you'd like, when using on the wheel wells, just use it straight.

When you ask, what to use w/ the clay bar, do you mean as a clay lube? personally, I just use fresh soapy water. But you can pick up some quick shine or spray n wipe to use as your clay lube. The quick shine doubles as a nice quick detailer to use after your regular washes to keep up slickness and gloss.
After claying, I would recommend the red moose glaze first, then top that with your choice, either carnuba moose wax or nattys paste wax. (nattys blue if its a dark car, regular/white if its a light color car)

Yep, the wax and glaze are applied by applicator pad and buffed off by mf towels :)
The total auto wash can be sprayed directly on the area. Scrub with the brush then wipe off w/ mf towel :)
