45 minutes or so. I spent a total of 6.5 hours doing everything plus 2 hours cleaning the inside the day before.

Was the clay 100% clean every time you left an area? 45 mins is very fast, your truck must stay in a garage a lot and you take very good care of it.

Mine stays outside, clay once a year and it takes about 3 hours

I clay bar every 4 months so it really isn't that bad. It actually stays outside all year I just try to take care if it.

I want to take the steps off and line-x them because they are getting a bit rusty.

i was told that clay baring the paint that often would actually hurt the clear coat. I haven't investigated this myself but thats what i heard.

I invested in one of those new double action drill powered waxing tools. Man did that help on shine and eliminated some of my fine scratches. It also reduced my waxing time by about 1/2. Saved my elbow too.

truck looks great sir,
