Default So Fresh...So Clean

Saturday, my fishing tournament got moved to Sunday, so i had all day to spend some much needed time with the Ranger. She hadn't been waxed in a while. While I was in toen i picked up some Meguiar's SwirlX to see if i could do any damage to swirled paint. My hood looks AWFUL when the sun hits it. I washed and hand dried her. i then proceeded to use the SwirlX on the hood followed my a good clay bar application. Then i used some Meguiar's Paint cleaner, then Meguiar's Paint polish; and topped it off with a fresh coat of Meguiar's NXT 2.0 Wax. I just did all of this to the hood. i only waxed the rest of the truck due to that i knew i wouldnt have enough time to do everything i wanted because it gets darker fast now (stupid daylight savings time). I even waxed the Alcoas! I applied all of this by hand so when i got done, my arms hurt. ive got to get a buffer or go see Trent! I'm having the truck professionally buffed and detailed beginning of Spring to make the paint look like brand new (i hate working at a gtanite quarry) Anyways enough rambling, on to the pics:

Before:








After:












(I hate how the sun give Torch Red an orange tint)

My buddy Jason's 2001 Dakota. Its alright. The Ranger will really outrun his 3.9L V6 in all aspects--pulling, acceleration, top speed, etc... He just had a new engine put it it due to the fact that his Ex blew the orig. engine by pulling it down to 2nd gear thinking she was in Drive---WTF, stupid blonde.

Man, your truck looks outstanding!

The Dodge is pretty nice, too. I like that body style.

Probably not...not much for wearin out my all joints and such faster. Or forkin over the extra money for alignment. My truck rides way to good to be messing with crap.
