    Had this little gem to do today. Sorry I haven't posted more, I keep forgetting my camera. Anyway, 2003 Ram with 42k miles. Pretty decent right? Yeah, except this guy carries his black lab in the back seat with him. It really wasn't as bad as I expected. There were some marks on the rear door that wouldn't come out, pretty sure it was dog drool that had etched in the paint like bird poo :dunno: . I broke out some older school on this truck. Knowing it was black, i went to the first combo i tried on a black vehicle since I got back into this: the Pinnacle Twins!!!!!! On to the process.

    Wash Meg's Gold Class/Shmitt
    Spot Clay Meg's Clay
    Pinnacle Twins (Advanced Swirl Remover, Advanced Finishing Polish)
    Natty's Red
    Checkered Flag Best Tire Dressing
    Mark V Window Sheen @ 8:1
    Mark V Qwik Dress @ 1.75:1
    Zep Carpet Shampoo @ "yeah that's enough"
    Wolfgang Orange Cut, CCS White.

    :dunno: I was detailing Juggs E90 this afternoon and then rode 24 miles on my road bike.

    Looks pretty good-sucks finishing after dark though, eh? It's only going to get worse too. :sad2:

    :rofl::rofl: you know, i have to remind myself that there are more than us 7 or 8 regular posters in here. i saw 16 views and thought, "now who is in here and not posting?!" sorry for the rant :o i did this thread on autopia and there have been 200+ views and 1 reply. apparently, my failure to use zaino doesn't attract any replys :hsd:

    and yes, that truck was big.

    Mostly just working, I guess. He isn't with Tigerlily (aka Carol Ann) anymore, in fact, she married someone else last week. They are still friends but she wanted to start a family and he didn't.

    ah. man it's such a drastic change, going from seeing juggs bustin ass on here, bansticking left and right worse than tank or glen, then, self banned. so goes it sometimes. that's a tough way to end a relationship, i'm sure. but a woman is gonna find that family man at some point.

    I would have responded sooner, but I have been on vacation for a week on a boat in the Pacific.

    That truck looked like a real mess in the befores!! Paint looks nice and clear in the afters, though. Nice transformation, JRock. Like Scott said, finishing after dark sucks, but finishing after dark on a black truck really sucks. LOL. Nice job!
