Cleaning Q

Hey All,

So this weekend I'm planning on doing a deep, deep clean on the truck wax it, clay bar it, the works. First off if anyone has any particular recomendations for wax for the indigo pearl paint let me know. The main questions is has anyone figured out a good way to clean between the bed and main cab? I'm going to spray the living hell out of it but just curious if there is an easier/better way of getting that really clean.

a good wax that you can get locally would be either meguiars, mothers, and i also like the eagle1 nanowax. all are really good. as far as getting behind the cab.........this sounds goofy, but it works. wrap some microfiber towels around something like a broomstick, soak in your carwash soap, then gentlyrun it back and forthbetween the bed and cab, then hose the hell outta it. it works for me, and it doesnt scratch it(as far as i know!!). your truck will thank you!!

If you really want the paint to look good you need to polish it before you wax.

Do you want to go with synthetic or natural wax?

Thats absolute gold thanks pb! oh and I was going to go with natural wax, unless you have a recommendation to otherwise. Figure most of the 110 degree days are done here in Tucson so hopefully it won't melt off too soon lol.
