    Haven't posted one in a while, so I thought I would post this one. 04 F150 Lariet extended cab with topper. Decently messy and swirled for 24k on the clock. Took 7 1/2 hours, about 3 hours on the interior. Process was:

    Interior (vacuumed, cleaned the mats, 1z plastik Reineger on the plastic, Meg's interior QD, woolite mix the leather, Lexol to protect).

    Wash
    Opt Hyper Compound with a light cutting pad
    Opt Compound/Polish 50/50 mix with a polishing pad
    Collinite 845 IW
    Hyper Dressing on the wheels and wells
    One spot touch up, have to finish it tomorrow or later on. Removed the rust with a glass sanding pen, 1z Acrysol to prep, and layered the paint. Wet sanding and polishing to come later.

    On to the pics!

    What I started with:

    After washing, I see what swirls I have to deal with (was actually worse than the pic shows, didn't angle the cam right on that tall hood!) :

    Here is the rusted shitty touch up job someone did :ugh:

    Looks like a Bissel Little Green Machine. If it is, they're like $69-$99.

    Awesome work, btw. Interior is spotless.
