    Finally got around to clay barring my 2005 access cab today...followed up with Mothers 3 step treatment. So all in all I had to go over every nook and cranny 5 times! (wash, clay,polish, seal and wax)
    what a frickin' job!
    But she looks beauty now!
    check it out!

    Very nice! Was that your first claying? Stuff is amazing. Just finished the wife's car tonight.. it was brutal on the sides.. turned the clay black.

    That white looks sweet, good job!

    Plasti coated grill and rear bumper along with all badges. Rigid Industrys D2 Driving lights. Money is tight so more to come soon hopefully.
    be careful using waxes and sealants. Usually one or the other should be used.

    well, I used the Mothers 3 step kit, so it includes the sealer and wax...I don't think Mother's would sell it like that if it was bad...?

    why is it bad to use both sealer and wax. I apply a sealer once a year and wax over it every other month

    It is actually recommended to use both, always using sealant as a base that way you get the best of both world the durability of a sealant and the deep glow of a wax, unless you're using the nano sealants, then you shouldn't put a wax over it as doing so will mask the beading/sheeting properties of a nano sealant.
