    I have a 2010 DBL Cab taco (Black...)...

    First of all, I love the color black especially when it's super clean and detailed. But when it's not, oh man it's a pain. My truck shows every rock chip, scratch, tiny dent and discolor. So it is a pain to maintain it.

    Mods: H.I.D. 6000 K Headlights
    3000 K JDM Yellow fog lights
    Replaced Dome, (2)Map lights with white L.E.D
    All season mats

    So nothing crazy has even been done to my baby, in fact most people wouldn't even say what I did a "MOD" more like an accessory. Anyways..

    The bad:

    Dent /right side of bed (size of a penny). It doesn't show up in pictures but it is such an eye sore, I have to get it fixed.

    Dent/roof - I have no clue how it got there, we have lots of raccoons, cats, coyotes in the area. Maybe someone was sleeping on my roof? lol

    So I wanna fix those things before I do anything else, it's bothering me a lot. Other then that it's your typical tiny rock chip/scratch.

    I used mothers clay bar, mothers polish, mothers sealer, mothers wax.

    Enjoy the pics! Tell me what you think? I'm going to try and make this an every 6 month habit.... especially on black paint.

    Pics (taken with iphone ... sorry)

    That's all folks! I'm pretty happy with the finish, I'm going to definitely invest in an electric buffer lol I can't feel my hands.
