If the wheels are painted with clear coat, use wax/polish you would normally use on the paint of the truck itself.

Polishing / Waxing the Hood

Probably a dumb question, but . . .

how does a short person with not much reach, polish & wax the hood? Do yall use a ladder to reach?

Do you wash your cleaning mits, drying towels, and micofibers a certain way? Or just through in the wash with other towels also do you dry them?

there are no dumb questions on tw I bought a plastic two-stepped one-piece stepladder at lowes for such purpose. I have several metal ones, but didn't want to risk scratching the truck with them. I actually cut up some benchpad and glued it to the bottom of the stepladder to avoid it's moving when leaning over the hood as had happened prior. hope this helps

is there a preferred method for removing wax from trim items? I have a few trim items that got a little wax on them a few months ago. Didn't notice at the time of wax but it has showed up later. Washing and rubbing has not removed it.

I have a really nice wooden stool that that I use when working on roofs of vehicles. It would work for your hood problem. I would not wear a belt without an apron covering the buckle.

It will last a while a little goes a long way... It don't take much of it to do a taco..
I also use the small 4oz bottle of the crystal sealant, and I've done my truck with two coats as well as the wife's highlander.... And still have plenty left... To give ya idea of how far it goes...

Did you polish first? How long after the application will water bead up nice and tight on the hood?

Nice job BTY!


The product is on sale at Autogeek for today. 30% off. Looks like a nice inexpensive product that works well. A lot of you guys on a budget should try it out.

I first use the clay bar, then apply the blackfire, let it sit a while, the top it with a coat of wax, water beads very good, nothing really sticks to the sides which makes washing easy....

Anyone have a free shipping code for Autogeek? It seems outrageous to pay $6.95..
"We charge a flat rate based on the order value." As taken from the website.. Seems to me a business should charge just for the actual shipping charge..

EDIT: Found a %10 off code. F150.
No free shipping code.. I am going to wait 3 and half hours to see if anyone else has a code.. That's when the blackfire %20 off ends.

If your order is over $95, use the code AGO for free shipping.

Thanks! Didn't think of that.

You saved me $6.50.. I'm going to put it in the deals and coupons on here..

I was able to apply both that, and F150 for a total discount of 8.. but then I canceled my order to check my paypal and if I had one applied, I couldn't apply another.. Oh well.

Interesting. I was able to use the free ship code and still retain the discount. I know AG only allows 1 code per purchase. I also had a decent sized order since there were a few other items I needed.
