    Heres the polish wheel i used. Be sure to go with the slowest setting on the dremel. I turned mine up and nearly burned thru the lens lol.. had to break out the sandpaper to clean it up. Also i used meguairs plastx. Basically put that on thick, and then used the dremel and buffed it all off till it was dry, then repeated the process.

    Sure thing mang!

    No worries brother, im right there with ya. Ready for the weekend so i can get some good rest! The plan is to build an access cab inferno pro of sorts. Not entirely sure how it will turn out, but im gonna give it a go. The paint is pretty much due for a freshen up, so im thinking a cheap vinyl wrap can buy me some more time before i have to get it painted

    I saw that pic you posted earlier, the Inferno ACLB looked really good. I think yours will as well. Looking forward to seeing the results!

    Finally managed to get an order in for some vinyl.. Go 50 of their last 60ft of 3M 1080. Should be plenty to do the truck even if i screw up some. Gonna start with simple stuff like the tailgate and some trim pieces until i get the hang of things.

    Thanks man, im kinda nervous to be honest. Hoping it goes smoothly.. I feel like theres a bit of a learning curve, but once you overcome that, it's just tedious. We shall see though! ill keep you posted as i get rolling (hopefully by next weekend)

    Restored the headlights out of my v6 that are going on the turtle here in about a week. One of them was a real pain, but they turned out alright for 6 yr old lights
