Finally got to use my new buffer...

Spent most of the day cleaning the truck and I finally got to use my new buffer. Process was: Wash with AJAX dish soap to remove all the old wax, claybar the entire truck, then Meguiar's #80 Speed Glaze, Meguiars #7 Show Car Glaze, followed by Meguiars #26 Hi Tech Yellow Wax. Thinking that tomorrrow it'll get another coat of #26, followed by some Meg's NXT wax to get it ready for wintertime. Here's some pics, although no good ones of the finished product cause it was dark out.

Claybar after doing 1/4 of the hood:



Claybar after doing 1/3 of the roof:



Giant tape ball from truck:



Shinyness:




No, I'm not missing a center cap. It was removed for cleaning.


I think that the worst panel on the truck is this bedside, and even it turned out pretty good.

Wheelwells (found an old bottle of Armor-All and decided that it needed to die there. I've done better...

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

i usually do all that after winter. i hate the thought of all that work and then get all the salt and crap on it . i just give it a good bath and wax it. then strip it all down in the early spring and start over. I get really crazy though. remove tires and i scrub the wheel wheels, i get under the truck and scrub, i scrub the axles. then when im done all that i need a bath too.

I didn't wipe it off or anything for that pic.

yeah looks great, i wasnt saying anything negitive, i was just saying that I like going through that hard work in the spring when all the salt is clear from the roads. i just keep it washed in the winter. and a normal waxing just before winter. hope you didnt think i was saying something negitive.

mppp? :shrug:

And Matt, I'm planning on powerwashing the underside of my truck if I can get another nice day this fall. If not, it will wait til spring when I can buy some APC and use that along with the power washer. :Thumbup: Also, I didn't think you said anything negative at all.. :shrug: This was just my "winter prep". Didn't want it to go all winter without any wax.
