    I wash and wax mine like every 3 weeks to a month, silver shows very little dirt untill it's really dirty. Meguires Quick Wax ftw, I can do my whole truck in about 15 minutes. Then I'll use some mothers back-to-black on all my black trim. I can't find any clay bar around here tho.

    hahaha so I know the guy who took this... along with alot other um much better ones.

    The panama green car you see behind her is a car called the Chaos4000 (3rd gen 3000GT) and the guy's name is Robert aka FTV Rob. The car is now repainted orange though.

    If anyone wants to cross-reference what I am saying, check out ftvgirls.com (NSFW it IS an adult site) based out of Phoenix, AZ

    Rob now also has a new GTR and last I talked to him he was considering an Audi R8

    *attached is the same car, for Alison Angel's site but taken originally for FTV*

    But to keep this thread specific, I have not detailed the truck yet but I will :)

    I love washing and waxing my truck. Granted, you really only need to wax your truck a few times a year (maybe once) if you do it right with the right product.

    But, what you guys are missing is the setting. Just going outside and grinding it out sucks. BUT, washing and waxing while listening to your favorite football game (Go Dawgs!) with a case of PBR and a few nice cigars, well, thats not washing and waxing. Thats called kicking back.

    Now of course, when the local college coed's are offering a parking lot car wash in their bikini's, well....thats when I prefer to have someone else do it.:)

    I'm OCD about it, but love doing it! It's just hard to do a 6 hour detail since I shattered both my wrists a year and a half ago.
