just cleaned truck...

it took 4 hours and ALOT of rubbing...i pressure washed it, then hand washed it rinsed with pressure washer...hand dried twice....then went around and buffed on paint cleaner and wiped off, then paint polish wiped off, and lastly buffed on NXT wax....awesome stuff...then vacuumed real good, detailed inside and out (excluding tires didnt want the dirt rim around tire). shew i was tired, the results were great though!!













what do ya think, shiny....

yeah, i like it when its clean i just used tire shine on my plastic and my interior, it looks better than armorall, smells better and lasts longer....it rained on it the next day but i didnt drive in it so it didnt get dirty, i just took meguiars detail spray and wiped it down, good as new again....

Looks awesome man! When your current tires wear out, look into the Firestone Destination MTs, they look MEAN on a red truck with those wheels. (Saw an F-150, similar color red, same wheels, and DEAD SEXY)

Just curious, what are the details on the buffer you used to apply NXT wax?
