Icon7 Washed and waxed the F-150 today...

Hey guys! I haven't posted over here in a little while and today was in the 70s so I took my Uncle Gary's 96 F-150 that I inherited when he passed away a couple months ago for those of you that didn't know, and I hand washed it today with Turtle Wax Ice carwash detergent, used some good ol Wesley's bleach white on the white walls and detailed the interior and waxed the outside with Meguires and here is the end result! It glistens in the sun like its a brand new truck. Tell me what you think!

Man.. as I said on RPS, that's one of the cleanest trucks of that style that I've seen, ever, if not the THEE cleanest. Keep up taking great care of it, and I like that you're leaving it just as he left it.

Holy **** thats clean. No F-150 rust. Damn keep it the way it is. I rarely see a decent one. Last F-150 in that body style I've ever seen in showroom condition was my dads F-150 when he brought it home from the dealer.

What engine does that F-150 have?

Yeah lol he had the truck how he wanted it and I don't want to change that. Plus the white walls are really growing on me! This truck is one of the few that can actually pull them off and look right.

Thanks man. I just don't think I could change it. If I go modding it, it wouldn't be the same. Just want to leave it how he had it and liked it.

Looks great for being 13 years old with that many miles on it....Keep it clean, and do an oil change regularly, and it can last you many more years.

looks great and understand keeping it as it was in your uncles legacy. I personally would add some tints though.
