    i finally got tired of staring at all the pin stripes our hunting land so graciously gave me, so i set the day aside and treated the truck to a wash, clay bar, buffing and wax job.

    here is before (there were alot more but these are the worst ones by far)

    Mothers clay bar kit, meguiars scratch x 2.0, and mothers carnauba wax. I've earned some more "badges" so I need to give it another treatment sometime.

    Ok awesome I have most of that stuff. Did you use a buffer?

    Yeah I have a ton myself and I'm selling my truck so I need to get rid of most of them.

    Yes I used a 7" variable speed buffer for the scratch removal and a 9" orbital for waxing. Be prepared to spend a few hours on this, but the result is well worth it.

    And the camper is pretty cool too. 22 years old with 56k miles and the interior is amazing for the age. The 454 big block in it is fun too ;)
