    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.

    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!
