Paint looks great. I did the same thing when i had my black f150 and when i traded in on my Ram the salesman was amazed at the age and millage of the truck. I did the same basic set up but with the porter cable DA, love the Megs 105/205 combo. I also went with the Coli on the black and it really popped. I have since continued my sickness into a little side business. The clay bar process is as important as they get.

Clay process is one that takes a bit of practice, but it's immensely important. I vastly underestimated how much contamination would be on a brand new truck.


I just received my new order from theragcompany.com. Needed some more detailing towels, some glass towels and some drying towels. They even threw in a microfiber mitt. Can't wait to try them out next weekend.




Really can't say enough about the company. Great people to deal with and an AWESOME product.

Got to use some of my newer products and have a trip this weekend, needed to clean the big girl up.






Next time I have a weekend that's free, I'm going to work the paint on her. She's definitely has her defects.

Looks good! I don't usually like white trucks but this still looks well maintained.

Appreciate the compliments. I wish I would have gotten a different color as well, but maybe in time. It could be a blessing in disguise. I've been trying to keep it in good shape, but it's hard to see defects in white. Hopefully I get white figured out and all other colors will become easier!

That is a great looking job. I am fast seeing a need for better paint care with my black truck. Thanks for the writeup!
