    Sup all, long time. Today I did a Ford F150 (2000?) that was severely oxidized and had water etchings & scratches all over it. It's a work truck so it was chipped & dinged in some areas.

    After I washed/clayed it you could still see the black was more of a powdery black with a milky residue all over it. I hit it w/some Meguiar's 80 Speedglaze and it took out almost all of that, but still left some heavy scratches & water stains I just couldn't get out. Unfortunately I was in the sun the whole time and had to work fast. I also have a serious headache from this as well.

    Anyway, pics:

    No, didn't touch the wheel wells. Big no-no I know, but it's going to the beach tomorrow and the owner said it would be overkill on the truck anyway.

    The alloys themselves are badly corroded and the finish was chipping.

    Nice job on the paint! Looks really wet and glossy. :)
