Washed my Taco today!

Pink wax and some mothers carwash soap! Gotta love the pink wax. you can use it on ANYTHING! windows, chrome, paint, even the black parts that you try to avoid with wax.

Looks like you did a great job. Are those headlights starting to turn foggy?

No sorry. If it were me I'd probably look for used ones or price some new ones (aftermarket or OEM-if available).

Make sure those restoration kits include abraisives. If they do, then your results will be permanent. You could also wetsand and polish your headlights they will come out like new.

The 3M kit I used was awesome.

And then I just make sure I apply 303 protectant every week to the headlights regardless if I washed the truck.

For the cost of doing a few headlight restore kits I got new headlights off eBay.

The wheels are Moto Metal 950's right?

What kind of tires are on it in the picture?

Looking good. I just washed mine today.
It's amazing how quickly the bug splatters add up.
