Detailed my truck...

Finally got around to detailing my truck since I drove to California and back. The process was wash using Meguiars Gold Class, 1 coat of #80 Speed Glaze Polish, and 1 coat of #26 High Tech Yellow Wax. I took these pictures in direct sunlight (12:30PM), so there's no hiding anything here, including my shiny orange peel. Also, these pics were taken the morning after I detailed it. It had been driven a few miles and sat all day in a gravel parking lot. Oh yeah, I did all of this BY HAND. Eventually I'll get a DA... laugh

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?

Looks great!

Nice reflection pictures.

I hate doing it without a DA as well, but there is some measure of satisfaction.

Congrats on a job well done.

Good looking truck! I love the hood stickers, something about the "power stroke", kinda at an angle, turns my gears.:Thumbup:

From a DODGE boy?? Haha... Thanks guys! I ordered the stickers the day after I bought the truck. Now I need to get a DA so I can do some more cleaning...

I'm a Ford guy at heart, I bought myself a Cummins and got a Dodge. But I do like my Dodge...

Your truck looks awesome, very nice job! You gotta love Meguiar's Products. Here are some pics of my truck with M80, M7, M21 synthetic sealant. I did use the DA Polisher, it makes things go a lot easier and quicker.
