    its a Toyota truck and that's all the modifications needed
    true, even after having loads of circumstantial evidence you still have to see the person in the act or have a witness to the act of vandalism or it didn't happen. I know this when I came out one morning and my trucks driver door was caved in, I knew a newspaper delivery truck dropped off papers across my street backed out and went up the street, had white paint on my blue truck, went to the newspaper place found out what number truck delivered those papers that day it had my blue paint and a dent in its rear quarter panel, called the cops they made a report, went to court brought the cop too, driver was there with a lawyer, judge asks me did you see it happen or have a witness? no , then it never happened. better off to just lie and say yes I did see him hit me if I was to do it again.

    You know damn well a full detail takes more than 1 full day, my only regret is not getting it into the garage.

    Admittedly, I was not sober. I still blame you because your 25 hour detail inspired all this nonsense.

    11 years of sun seems to have taken its toll on my hoodscoop, the plastic insert (removable) is peeling. The clearcoat is bubbling and has seen better days, does anybody have any suggestions...?

    I called a few local body shops and they quoted me a few hundred dollars and gave the impression it was not even remotely worth their time, ok.
    A new SWB hoodscoop from toyota is like $300 :frusty:

    does anybody have any suggestions before its really too late? Is it possible to peel off the clearcoat and put a new coat on?

    This picture was like 5 months ago, it looks worse now. Thanks guys

    All ready to late once you hit clear coat failure. Check around online bet you can find the part cheaper.

    You can't peel the clear coat off and shoot clear over it.

    Why is the paint peeling...because of neglect? Is the rest of the body like this or just this removable scoop? If it's neglect like the whole body... don't do anything other than pay pro to repaint the whole body. If it's just the scoop... and you regularly protect the paint...remove it...and use duplicolor OEM match once you sanded the piece so you can prime and spray can the OEM color back on...then shoot 2K clear in a can, but it's highly toxic so you have to use a professional mask and well ventilated area. It'll be about $40 fix.

    But be honest with yourself if after you do all this...will you continue your old ways or willing to wash and put sealant/coating on it. If your old ways... save your money and just enjoy the truck until you get another one. I doubt after respray it'll be a good match because it's a can of paint and old paint that's hard to match, but it'll look better.

    its not from neglect lol, I use some fancy wolfgang sealant twice a year with a porter cable buffer, water will always bead on my truck for the rest of its life. Unfortunately the truck has sat out in the sun its whole life, never had a garage to store it in :(

    so you suggest to sand it and paint it myself, hmm ill give it a shot then, will probably have to wait until spring when it warms up though, thanks for the help :D

    If I was in your shoes... if the part is already damaged...why not just sand it and then pick a color you like...if you want it black or flat black... long as your spray can skills are good...should come out nice. The 2K clear has UV protectant in it.... The duplicolor OEM is a fairly good match... it's just if your truck has faded...it may not match 100%. If you want contrast...then black will definitely stand out and you won't have to worry about paint matching. Sun damage is brutal... just didn't want to waste your time if it wasn't taken care of... wasn't meant as offense.

    Any reccomendations on bulk tire shine? Trying to find a good more cost effective tire shine that doesn't sling.

    Two suggestions

    One of the very limited CG products I use is the VRP dressing. I apply with a chip brush (can be bought for 50-80c each, and a foam applicator to smooth it out)
    I apply two even coats, each about 30 mins apart
    On the cheaper side for a gallon (about 35-40) wait for the xmas sale

    If you want boutique/ high quality

    McKee 37 tire coating
    This performs exceptionally well and lasts!!!
    Higher price... but you get what you pay for

    Hope that helps!
