    we had an out of town trip last week and my truck got pretty dirty.

    We washed my truck friday, and it's getting fairly swirled.
    It had a few fine scratches from kids, and the top of my tauno cover had a bunch of scratches
    from my neighbor's kid who decided to get up on it and roll around

    So Saturday I polished it up and gave it a good wax sealer for the winter.

    Polished the scratches and top of the cover with SSR2

    Polished the whole truck with SSR1
    and PB ultra fine polish.
    Final with EX

    It took most of the day, but turned out sweeeeet.

    That ultrafine polish as AWSOME stuff. it works great on the windows, chrome and I even polished
    my clear bra on the front

    Here's some pix:

    Love the Clear bra, no chips here!

    I love the Klasse, it goes on smooth, cleans off tar and tarnish marks, and seals it up!

    Curious do you always leave the polish on the whole vehicle? I normally wipe as I go so I can check my work.

    Thanks Brian!


    The polish I do each area at a time, like the hood, or whatever. The fine and wax I do the whole thing.



    Thanks Meangreen, what truck do you have?

    79 f 150 4x4 :naughty:

    I posted some pics of it awhile back in the members ride section.

    Heres the link to it http://www.sn95forums.com/forum/index.php?topic=4206.0 I gave it a good wash after those pics and it was clean until today when i went out hunting to test the new powertrax locker a bit. Its not too bad there is only a few small pieces of mud on the hood no major chunks ill snap some pics in the morning.
