    This is a horse trailer that I detailed the other day.

    Look at what I had to start with:

    Here, I have already washed the whole trailer and have polished one half with Meguiars DACP and Clearkote's Vanilla Moose. Slight difference on the polished side, eh?

    Both sides are now polished. Since Vanilla Moose contains wax and the owner didn't want me to do anything more than necessary to bring it back to life, this was only a two step job. I normally would have made it a 3 step job at least...but I'm doing what they are willing to pay for. ;)

    The non shiny part around the door handle is just crappy paint work, probably why the owner just wanted what was needed to get some shine back.

    Here we have the finished product. Again, the only two products I used were DACP and Vanilla Moose....and all by hand! Took me a little more than 3 hours.

    That's crazy, people don't really believe that polish can do anything for them until they see pics like that!

    What I really can't believe is letting anything fade that much before deciding to do something about it. :dunno:

    I'm under the impression that most people just don't know that they can do something about it. They just think that paint wears out. :dunno: I don't know why they think it, but they do.
