Nice write up. I would have probably spent like 2 pages on steps, but I'm a little obsessed when I do a full detail.

Normal is as Normal does.

Bouncerhouse23 '05 Crew, short bed, 6spd, RWD. Upgraded Headlight Bulbs and an Extang Classic Platinum Tunneau, but nothing else done yet...I still use if for work and don't want to screw up any mods. Should become a project truck soon. Only regret is that it is not a diesel...Damn US limited engine choices.

Agreed, I don't think even I would be able to read one of my write ups. It would be way to detailed. I use a Porter Cable orbital buffer and if I gotta use any polishing compunds I even break out my Dewalt rotary buffer. Nice job Drew!!!

18" MB Predators on Falken Ziex STZ01's, Alpine HU JL amps, MTX Thunderform Box with Rockford sub, Eclipse 6x9 seperates, E&G Classics Grille, Gibson Stainless Exhaust, Volant Intake, Undercover Tonneau Cover and more to come when the money comes.






Life's a B!tch!
Don't vote for one.

Not my cup o tea!

pat....yeah your right i got nothing

for the tools I like using an orbital but thats a pain to write up for hte noobs just getting into the detailing, I tried to hit on everything and keep it simple so people would go out and do it them selves

Past 2006 SE with way too many mods.
Current 2015 TRD OR Tacoma

I have a question on using an orbital. Do you apply the product by hand, then use the orbital to buff it out?

Most products I've seen get applied directly to the pad on the orbital and then blended into the surface.

Very nice write up...Very "detailed".....no pun intended..hee hee.

I did have a question. What about polishing??? Do you guys ever polish your truck?? Maybe like once a year or so, prior to waxing??? I used to do it on a 97 Black Jeep Grand Cherokee I had, and it looked amazing...However, I didn't know if it was good to do it too many times. Are there drawbacks to polishing your vehicles??

Thoughts??
