Okay little update. Spent the weekend working on the truck again. Removed the valance piece between the grill/head lights and the front bumper in order to repair a bunch of rust spots and use it as a test piece to verify the paint code for the truck. I got it all bumped out and painted earlier today but its dull since there is no clear coat on it.
Started sanding down my new bed cap to get it prepped for paint. Have it all wetsanded down and ready to go but the pine tree next door decided to puke on it so have to hit it with some grease and tar remover tomorrow, and hopefully lay down sealer, base and clear tomorrow night.
And a couple of pictures after a whole lot of buffing today. Started with a wash and clay bar, then used Meguiars M105 and M205 followed by Mothers Reflections. Came out great and uber shinny.
