    Don't have any pictures. Usually after spending 10 hours on my truck I'm too delirious to take pictures.

    Last Detail:
    Chemical Guys (CG) Clean Slate wash
    CG Diablo Wheel Gel
    CG Decon Iron Remover
    CG V36 and V38 two stage polish w/ white and orange pads (hex logic).
    CG Jet Seal Sealant on all painted surfaces and lights
    CG Trim and Tire gel on all trim


    Just an FYI, Mequires Hot Tire Shine is not powder coat safe. I have the same wheels (and truck too DCLB TRDSport FTMFW!).
    You have to be very careful what products you use or get on your wheels when you have a powder coated finish. Make sure you keep them clean too. If you can get a wheel sealer (next on my purchase list). Our wheels are too bad ass to not look bad ass all the time ;) even after 20 years.

    Good to know. I've been using it a long time and thankfully no issues. I'll look into switching it up

    I just had my truck through the guys at RestorFX in Bellingham and my truck paint looks better than new! I can't say enough about their product, it made my red pop.
