Working trucks need love, too right? Recently we worked on a massive Ford F-350 Dually, performing a 1-step correction and ceramic coating. While the paint was in pretty good condition there was an excessive amount of fallout; tar, rail dust etc. After a wash, clay and fallout remover these deposits were not budging.
No worries, we broke out the Rupes UHS and UHS pad and went to work. The firm pad really helped in quickly removing the leftovers, which still took hours due to the sheer size. However, working on big trucks sure is a lot better on your back! A second pass was needed with a fresh pad to refine the finish, but the result was a beautiful, pure white.
Inside the letters required hand polishing to get every corner properly.
Taillights were polished to remove the swirls and water etching.
Next, we polished up the wheels with Poorboys Metal Polish, a cone drill attachment did wonders to get all the way into the back of those rear wheels.
With all the polishing done we proceeded to a CarPro Eraser wipedown, not only work great but also smells nice, and began the coating process. Gtechniq CSL topped with EXO, also knows and CSL Black, for up to 5 year of protection. The wheels received the same treatment and the windshield just the CSL.
While that was setting, we moved into the interior. To clean rubber floors mats, pedals, even running boards you never want to use a dressing. However, ONR and a wheel brush do wonders to not only clean but provide nice even finish. Chemical Guys VRP applied to all exterior plastics and tires.
Finished off with a final wipedown with Gtechniq C2 V3 to button it up and glass done last with a new set of gloves as to not get anything on it.
This bad boy is now looking amazing and protected from the harsh CA sun for years to come.
