    Well here in Alabama we get some crazy weather. Just here Thursday we had about 2-3in of snow and today its mid 60's last time I checked. So I decided to enjoy the weather and give the tacoma some TLC. Here are some before and after pics, plus a little info on what I used.
    BEFORE

    As you can see its pretty bad dirty like not washed in 3-4 months dirty.

    Here is what I used to clean it with.

    First time using the ICE paste product and I have to say its pretty dang easy to use. You just wipe it on there let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe off the stuff and buff it to a shine with a microfiber cloth. I only used the liquid clay bar on the hood since thats where most of the backed on stuff was, however it did get some of the stuff off but there is still some water spots that were backed on that it just would not get off. Also I have to be honest I was sceptically about the slime stuff but I actually like it. It claims you can use it on any plastic or rubber part on the vehicle even the interior. Did a great job on the bumpers and on the tires I like it because it just gives it a wet look and not the greasy look that most tire shines give that I hate.

    Now on to the after pics!!!!!!

    You don't have to do everything all at once. If you next do the windshield, and keep rotating your areas of attention, the truck will be cleaner all year round, more than if you did everything at once. Looks good.
