Default First time ever wash and wax...

This is my first time ever waxing my truck and using a buffer and what not and it didn't turn out to bad. Thanks to Cllinton here really help me out a lot lol.
My materials.




Before.

Don't mind the grill



Can't really see it in this pic but there was a ton of hard water spots on the tailgate. It was like that when i bought the tg






Never could figure out what this was...

a little bug and tar remover and

And this is the only rust on my truck. Not to bad for NE Ohio. Anyone know how i can stop this?

And the After Pics



Any Ideas on what to put where the old ford emblem was?






And the shit i need to return and hopefully not scratch her



I also need to get my pin striping off.
Let me know what you guys think!
