Spent my Sunday cleaning.

Cleaning like I've never cleaned before. Clay barred the entire truck then cleaned the interior and conditioned the seats. Been a while since I even cleaned the truck. I found out clay barring isn't really my thing, it took forever lol.\

no just time consuming. you basically take the bar, unwrap it, spray the detailer mist and rub away. basically look for sticky spots or little raised spots. just think of covering your whole truck in a 3" wipe. it dose make the difference on a polish/wax job.


did my buddys 04 Dakota yesterday.

looks awesome dude! also, what do you use to condition the seats? my rear seat has some weird stains on it it. and my steering wheel is shot. i have pieces of leather on my hands and shorts after driving. the top of the steering column is always covered. hopefully conditioning it will cure that

Is yours a KR?

I use the King Ranch leather conditioner, Leather Honey, Leather CPR, Lexol, and Buffalo Butter. Not all at the same time of course. It's just depends on what mood I'm in. The Leather CPR is the best overall IMO.

As long as has never been frozen and will mix back together then it should be good to use.

Funny you mention that. I actually just got done getting the stuff I didn't have time for yesterday. Wheels and tires, pedals, back to black on the mirror arms, and the bedrug.
