    makes me miss my taco....

    Anyways, took about 14 hours with help.

    Process used:

    Hand wash with a wax and polish oil remover
    removed tail lights, TBL, license plate and wheel bolts
    Taped all the rubber off
    Megs MF disk and D300 compound
    Black and White pads and Menzerna SF4000
    IPA wipedown
    Menzerna Powerlock sealant
    C/G paste wax
    Dressed the tires, wheel wells, frame, leaf springs basically the whole undercarriage
    Polished chrome
    Polished, sealed, and waxed door jambs by hand

    all plastic (headlights, tails etc) were sealed and waxed as well

    Didn't touch the interior or engine bay (ran out of time)

    Sorry for not getting very good quality of pictures, was pressed on time.

    Here she is as she showed up

    wrong.

    little bit better

    Left side is after compound, before polishing. middle is un touched, and the right is after compounding and polish.

    Yup! It's kinda scary how smooth it is. When I was done with my ranger it had to be on a perfectly level surface for someone to lean on it or they would just slide while leaning on it.
