much needed wash n wax

so i was at a friends house today and he had the wax and buffer out and was doing his car and asked if i wanted to do mine. so i said yes.

first time i've ever waxed this thing and actually cared enough to dry it after washing! haha

a TON of the scratches I had from wheelin came out. looks really good. even real cam pics wouldn't do it justice. I did just the door and you could see the difference between the door and the front fender. im definitely satisfied with it.

Turned out great! I figured you used some high-end stuff for that shine. It's amazing what a little wax will do.

yeah a little wax goes a long ways! i was pretty surprised! wasn't expecting much of a difference since the truck is so new. but then again I have put it through hell lol.

if i woulda planned it out i woulda clay bared the truck as well. but that takes SO LONG

dont be scared. just make sure you wash it really good before starting. back when i had my old car and i cared more about washing it twice a week etc i watched youtube vids of how to properly wax and buff and learned that way. youtube ftw

plus after learning you can most likely charge people to do their cars for them if you have all the equipment. i have a few people that want me to do their cars for 30 bucks a piece lol
