I'm just getting it ready to sell, Since I'm going down to a f-150. Hey You know I saw a f-150 truck that the paint job was the texture of one of those rough spray on bed liners. Anyone know how to do that... Now that would be cool. I could paint my f-150 that rough texture and go any place in the woods.
SURE I AM

If you were closer to me I'd have you practicing your "OOOh's & AAAAAAH's

Ill show you tomorrow what I'm talking about there, OK? {me needeth day light again} If my retinas didn't get burnt out from clicking on that photo

All I did was save it to my pictures (ON MY PC) use my cameras software to down size it and re post it.

I would do a My 4 step process on that!
wash it with dawn to get it good & clean.

Thn use either "fall out remover " or "dreaded red"

Then use a heavy cleaner wax( paste form).

Then use a 50/50 mix of cleaner wax & acrylic sealant.

Then a hard Teflon wax to get a hard finish on it so it will last.
Ive had people lean up against their cars and fall over because their so slick

Its all "Elbow grease" & when I get dont there are NO swirl marks

I dont do to many "painted" vehicles because I dont or cant paint them if something happens to them.

So I mainly stay to marine products Gel coat Is tuff you could throw a polishing wheel {running } @ a boat and it wouldn't hurt it [Not the metal part ]


sorry I digress i will show ya in the AM so start practicing...

OOOOOOHHHHHHHH......AAAAAAHHHHHHHH...WOW!
see better to be a smart arse than a dumb arse

Here is a boat I did 2 befores and two afters {Ineed to work on my photography skills some more}

In the AM!!

Here are the wool pads I like:

If you want to buy the stuff locally, look up in your yellow pages under Auto Body Supplies and make a couple of calls.

satexasf150,
This is the GOO I use;

I have Commercial cleaner wax { 1 gallon white bucket}

Acrylic sealant.

This is my preference of Teflon wax (for now unless I find something better)

Gloves Important because I developed a reaction to having that crap on my hands for hours upon hours everyday I found the Vinyl once last the longest

How do you apply this stuff?

Just what did you use to apply this to the truck? Pads, a little muscle?

Applying the Cleaner wax
{which by the way is Completely NON abrasive}
put it on heavy and work it in a little more than you would normally do .work it in until it starts to flash or you get tired

**If the paint is "DEAD" this stuff will take it off just like compound will**[see the "application devices{soft clean old socks] see how its taken the oxidized paint off?]

Yes ..Wax On ..Wax Off
This it somewhat temperature sensitive or rather a "weather" sensitive thing..

Works best above 70*F and low humidity& of course out of direct sunlight .

Too hot is no good either it doesn't let the wax "flash properly,
So if it been parked out in the sun for too long it will need time to cool down for a while.

Then I put Teflon wax on .
By this time its pretty slick and depending what its looking like there are a few variations I use .

After doing a whole vehicles I will wash & chamois them down to release the static energy built up while removing the wax & the dust that is created.

The chamoising is to keep water spots from forming .

Usually this will last a easy 6 months to a year if you take care of it & I dont use soap to wash after unless something oily get on it

if you do have to use soap use car was soap it wont mess with the chemicals

Dawn & Bug spray will make a big mess out of it!

So what do you think? or

The cleaner wax ...well that is my trade secret
I will send you some if you like but I 've been using that stuff for 25 years and I never have told anyone what the brand name is the rest of it is good stuff there is a place here in Ocala that makes all the rest of the stuff I use I need to see if my secret weapon is still manufacturing it
I bough 8 gallons 10 years ago I hope there still in business because if they aren't then neither am I
