he lives in boston, so the acidy rain shit was all over it. i did a detail last year on a corolla that destoryed a brand new clay bar of mine, this wasnt as bad, but the whole thing had to be clayed real well. its got some dings and scratches, some were too deep to get out. but i diminished the look of them if i couldnt get them out. it really needed a full correction job. up close u can still see some scratches. if he paid me to do it, i wouldve used a combo of SSR3/2.5/1. but since he didnt want a correction job done, he didnt get one. however, this looks amazing in person :imo much better than what it was. hes going to be pumped when he see's it. im assuming it'll be back again in the middle of the summer since he lives in the city.

thanks for the compliments guys

yeah i was up at 530 this morning after going out for some beers last night. kinda sucked, but worth the few bucks i made.

thanks for the compliments bro.

i see compound dust in the doorjam :killer: sorry but i had to say it
thats not compound. the whole trucks been resprayed. im not sure if it use to be white or not, or if it was pieced back together after a wreck using parts off of a white truck. i saw some runs in the paint, and some areas looked textured. its a wicked shitty paint job up close. but u dont notice it really unless your looking.

looks awesome man! Definitely a nice finish, especially w/o polishing. What wax did you use? Did I miss that?
I did polish. SSR1 and then waxed with nattys blue.

I was saying that it couldve used SSR3/2.5 and then 1 over the whole thing, vs just a fine swirl remover.

i spray BnB on an applicator pad and wipe around the sidewalls. and then spray it in the wheel wells and wipe clean too if they have the black plastic on the inside, or even rubber undercoat.

chris- ill PM u when i need it. im also going to need some of that leather/vinyl/trim stuff by klearkote. and a bunch of other stuff. :shake:

looks great except you forgot to get the excess around the "z71" sticker. I use a soft toothbrush on mine and it works perfectly.

I can upload I suppose. I dont keep all sizes posted from them, but if its made in an available size, you can get it from me :)

Have you tried Bare Bones yet for wheel wells? You might want to give it a shot if you havent. Shit is great!

But yea, lemme know whenever you're ready bro :shake:
