Drove to work....

Oh and more importantly, loaded all the lumber up for my DEER blind and hauled it to work, then unloaded it. Building blind while on company time.
Drove home and unloaded my .270 from extended cab.

Well, I planned to wax it, but the weather went crazy and didn't cooperate:


I decided to just wax the tailgate in my garage, instead, to see how well my new RO buffer and gold class liquid wax worked. I want something to hide the swirls, but it's really not worth polishing the truck with how much bush pinstriping I get, I'd be cutting my clearcoat down every month and ruin my paint trying to do that.

Anyhow, I started off with a clean, washed and clayed but very swirly tailgate:


Then I taped everything off and applied the wax thinly with the buffer:
(Detailing people, does this look thin enough?)


And buffed it off to this:





The 50/50 pictures didn't turn out, my camera wouldn't show the difference in reflection (though it was very noticeable to my eyes). I used the harshest lighting I could (1500W of overhead halogen), and I could see a real difference, plus now the water beads off like it should.

Put on my $70 cap. Looks like its been on there for years. Which is surprising as the bed has only been on 6 months.

I used it today to help my sister move to her new house. Yesterday, I replaced the water pump. I feel sorry for anyone who has to do that on a 3.0L. It's not the hardest thing in the world to do, but getting to a few of the 11 (or was it 12?) bolts is tough. I spent 7 hours in the ~100 degree heat replacing it.
