few pics after wash, clay bar, and wax

i used meguiars(spell check?) clay kit and there NXT tech 2.0 wax. i love the wax but not sure about the clay bar. i didnt really notice that much. maybe i didnt do something right, i just went by what the box said to do.







Dont beat me up too bad for this but.....

here is me and my lady for prom. i wanted to drive my truck to prom but all i could get was pics next to it the boss said we have to take a limo. i was jealous, my buddy took his date in his 7.3 and the 6.0 had to stay at home
dont make fun of the pink either, i didnt get to pick haha, but it was a good night

Looks great! A proper clay bar job is to remove particulates and dirt in the top layers of the clearcoat. You won't notice much by "looking" at the paint but by feeling it. You can get a better effect with some 2000 grit wet sanding + compounds and a buffer but for the ease of use and logitivity of your paint the clay bars work great.

On a side note. Get used to not getting the say in most things. You have to guise it is a "need to do" that will benefit her too lol You will learn in time young grasshopper.

Looks sweet. I just did mine about a month ago, used the same stuff except for the clay bar. I used Mothers cause I heard it worked a little better then the meguiers. The wax works great though, good job.

It's alright man, I also had to wear pink for prom. But the trade-off was that I got to drive my truck.

Truck looks good after a wash! Must be your senior prom for wearing white, I'm assuming? And... I gotta give you **** for wearing pink dude. You knew someone had to. Haha! Damn, she made you wear pink everything! And it's not even a little pink, it's like PINK. Oh well, hope it was worth it!

Hope you guys have/had a good time! I know I did my senior prom!

we sure did
i had to do that for her but she is always helping me get stuff for my truck and hanging out at the local diesel event stuff with me and friends so she is a keeper. she was the one that helped me wash it but she wouldnt stick around for the clay and wax. something about her hair was messed up so she went inside haha gotta love her. after 4 years she has learned to drive my quad(clutch), backing into a parking spot, and fish. sad thing is she usually catches more than me. well thanks for the compliments. just wanted to show everyone what a few bux of car care stuff can do to a WORK truck

Nice truck, it looks great. The girlfriend is a cutie and from the sounds of thing she seems like a keeper. Helps with the truck, goes to the diesel events AND fishes. Not a bad find. She wouldn't happen to have her own boat would she?
