    Finally pulled the trigger and made the deal yesterday. Traded in my Accord and gave them my F250 for some government money and brought it home last night. I told them I didn't want them washing it or anything. Spent four plus hours this morning washing, masking, polishing with some Mequire's show car polish with the PC 7424 and a grey pad and one sealant coat of Griots with a white pad. May put a coat of wax on before the day is over.

    I even bought it in Tacoma as my 4 year old daughter Hannah proudly displays[​IMG]

    Should be good now. I am not used to having to direct link the photos. All of the other forums I just use the img link.

    Great truck! Looks like Hannah will enjoy it for a long time. My 5 year old boy really enjoys our truck. Plently of room to grow with the truck.

    Oh yes. Those god awful snow shovels are horrendous. Next to go are the tube steps. They only benefit my little one. Otherwise they are unusable.

    Thanks for the kind comments. It will be sometime down the road before I do any serious modding(That's what I told my wife when I bought the Accord. One year later...).

    The only downside with polishing is that- One, I found a little dent. The dealership gave me a coupon for a free dent repair so I will be using it. Two, with the polishing of the paint it almost makes the add on fender flares look off due to the fact they aren't smooth. Other than that I couldn't be happier.
