I finally washed the truck after a horrible winter. I laid under it and pressure washed for a half hour. I was disgusted by what came out. After that I washed it with some Meguiars stuff. Then I did a super fast wax job with Meguiars Deep Crystal. I like that wax because its very easy to take off. I also took some light scratches off with some 3M Perfect it III. It works real good applied by hand and is not a heavy cutter. For tires I used Bleache White and a pressure washer, no tire shine. Polished up the bumper & mirrors with some Turtle Wax chrome polish. As I was waxing it I noticed how bad it needs clay bar treatment. I will be doing a full detail in the next week or so and will post up some tips for cleaning after winter. I'll show the places where the salt likes to hide. :mad: Enough yammering...

Here's some pics

Thanks guys! She needs way more TLC, but I was happy to get it done.

74º & sunny here! Then it rained today. :mad:
Where'd you get that sticker? :D
Nick sent it when I got my DSP stuff.

I liked them but this looks way cleaner. And guys in F150s no longer want to race. :rof
Looks good, once warm weather gets here, mine will get a nice wash and cleaned inside as well.

But Chris those nerf bars look awful heavy.
I really dont need them anymore since its low and they are kinda bulky now that you mentioned it. :D

November 14th was the day it saw a bucket & wax. I did hose it off once or twice in a car wash bay.

Nice, glad he got some made locally. I made some for him, but autoforums dot com wanted some insane amount of money so I could be a "vendor."

lol. a vendor to sell 50 bucks worth of stickers a month.... :rof
