Default Truck dun got cleaned

washed twice with meguires gold car wash, then buffed with maguires buffing compound, tore the chrome off before all that buffed nearly all the glue off its barely noticable still need to hit it with the eraser wheel again and another buff, cleaned the interior too threw some armor all on everything inside and the fender flares. and scrubbed and threw tire wet on the tires. looks great i love this color. of course all the tourists are showing up since its 80 out so i couldnt do nice beach pics so heres some lame ones in my back yard.

Looking good, but you missed a spot. But I don't blame ya because I hate those spots too! And they stand out like a sore thumb.

Front wheel well.

That'* why you get one of these. Its amazing that some people go to great lengths to make a car look so good on the outside, but don't spend a few more dollars and some elbow grease to take a it a step further.
