Only 4 hours of work

Well it only took me 4 hours of my day. But here is the final product.






Moved into the sunlight




Ok so I cheated. I went through a drive thru automatic carwash then came home waxed/polished it and then detailed it. But anyone that has the crew cab trucks know if you wash and wax it all by hand it takes about 8 hours start to finish.

Oh and I really think I need some clear lenses for my cab lights.

Wow you got her lookin' good! Do you use a buffer? I do and it really speeds up the work and does a great job. I'm getting ready to totally detail mine too. Great job.

I did use one of those sears orbital electric buffer on the front end and the cab. But when I got to the bed I just did it by hand.

I use 3m hand glaze polishing compound. It costs about 25 dollars for a big bottle. But that bottle does alot jobs. In my opinion it is one of the best polishes out on the market. But you have to get it at a bodyshop painter supply store. Then I used black magic on the tires and all the plastic trim. Makes the running boards slippery. I use brillo pads on the rims really gets the dirt and brake dust off them.

No I am tired from doing her, and I still have the inside to do. But I did the inside last time I washed her. So she is not to bad inside the truck.

Looks good. It takes me 4 hours to do mine start to finish but I have spotless water, buffers, and an air conditioned garage.
