Dealing with Arizona Pinstriping

It seems branches and sticks love to carve their names into the side of a black truck more than anything. Two questions:

1) Are there trails within 45-60 mins of Tempe where I can offroad without having to worry about getting pinstripes from desert bushes/trees? I don't need any trails too crazy, just some hills to try out my locking differential and scare my wife.

2) what is the best way to get rid of Arizona pinstriping?

thx guys.

The best way to deal with pinstriping to is wear it with pride baby! I am sure just a normal wash and wax with get out the small scratches... If you get a deep one you might have to ask in the detailing sections. Those guys know their shit!

But I guess I didnt answer your question. Wax and buff should get the majority out...and some elbow grease.

Au contraire... I get more compliments WITH pinstriping than I did before when it was all shiny. It shows ACTION!

Buff/wax is about all you can do. The clear coat sucks balls on these trucks... so depending on how deep the scratch is, it's probably for life. My truck is riddled with them, but still looks great about 6' away

Also, +1 from Adam, I get more compliments for using my truck than having it all waxed up, shiney, and scratch free lol. Besides, it's a truck

Any of you guys ever been to the "Pitts" off I-10 and Queen Creek Rd? Its the group of hills east of the freeway on the Indian Rez. Had a good time there tonight. I grew up in the area and know that place like the back of my hand.

I have to say, thats one of the hazards of getting a dark truck. I love my white truck because it does not show the trail pinstripes.

My truck is black.

I've had good luck buffing out the deeper scratches with a compound like Meguiars ScratchX on a small cotton wheel on a dremel. Obviously with any compound and electric tool you can glaze or rub through the paint - so use a light touch!

The advantage is I can deep-buff an area only about half an inch wide to take out the "deep" scratch without removing huge amounts of paint over a large area.

Then use a "glaze" polish (Like Meguiars Ultimate Polish) with an orbital buffer to camoflauge the minor scratches, then wax and electric buff, then a final rub out of the wax by hand.

This is too much work if you're wheeling every weekend. But if you're going a few times a year or every couple months, you can clean it up this way.

Where exactly is this? I drive by there all the time and.... I've never seen any hills. Plus you have to be careful on the res man, you need permission otherwise the can, and probably will impound your vehicle. They did it to one of my co-workers friends out by that little mountain on I-10 and the Gila River.

It's 1 mile east of the 10 and a quarter mile north of queen creek rd. It looks like there isn't much there and then you see it is a pit 40 ft deep and half a mile long.

Yes, people need to be aware that it is Indian res and the general public is not allowed there. I've got some good stories for another time.
