Oh Yeah full rub down and massage

So i figured i'd fully wash my truck and not pull a quick wash. I polished the wheels ohh boy they took 2 1/2 hours filthy.

Exterior
Gold Class Clay Bar Kit
Gold Class Car Wash
Then used Meguires new Brilliant Solutions Paint Restoration Kit
Meguries Hot Rims Polish
Meguires Gold Class Endurance High Gloss Tire Goop

Interior
Vacuumed Floor
Simple Green Every Place
Armor All Natural Finish on plastics and dash
Shampooed seats
Cleaned Glass
Hung a BLACKICE





this is from one rear wheel gawd

The old grill would look better.

Is some of your tint coming off your corner lights?

I think you should try to acetone your emblems then leave the inside of the letters chrome and paint the rest black.
