    I can think of a lot of things I’d rather do than wash and wax my truck. I washed and waxed right before winter last November then never touched it for the next 5 months. But I knew it was clean and protected underneath all that dirt.

    yeah, not many people in the city seem to care much about their truck. just something to get them around i guess.

    Looks sweet. Do you have any problems getting minor scratches out of this paint? I have an 06 impulse red too and it's the worst paint I have ever worked with trying to get scratches out. ( i use a porter cable random orbital and grios waxes and polish) Just wondering if you find the same. thanks

    i didnt know toyota dropped that color? Yeah its tough to get the scratches out. and my hood has some decent size chips in it. its very dirty now between working it and the damn pollen here. the wheels were the best purchase i made i think

    Looks good. It's a scientifically proven fact that IRP is the best color ever, especially when waxed. The debate is over, it's a fact.
    Therapy, just like the gym or the heavy bag in my garage. I go out and wash and wax and don't think, just do. It's either that or I find some random dude and ruin his month.

    yeah, it is therapy, for a guy any way. I like the gym, fixing my old chainsaws and working on the truck. One of the many things I cant seem to get my girlfriend to understand.....
