Winter is close! Don't forget to wax the top of your stroker.

I have waxed my truck for two nights.Today i looked on top of my truck and man it was nasty!
So me and my girlfriend cleaned and waxed the top of the truck
I look at other strokers and the tops of them look really bad.


Just a reminder to every one.

Is there something beneficial to waxing the roof? Does it keep a lot of salt off of it?

Can't reach then either! First thing I bought when I bought this truck was one of those long brushes for washing and still have a hard time!

i used to detail cars and i recommend useing detail clay before you wax .if your not sure what it is its like regular clay but made only for auto finishes its great it removes all the grit on the paint tree sap industrial fall out . you will be surprized whats on your paint that you cant even see so after you clay the truck then put a nice coat of wax on it . this way the paint is nice and clean. just thought id mention that

I would think it would start to fade and peel early in life.All the roofs i have looked at was realy bad and some started to rust.
