I lurk around the forums quite a bit. I soak up all the knowledge and info I can. I've been wanting to give my truck (2018 Sierra Elevation - Black) a super clean, sealant and wax. Hunting Season and winter is right around the corner. So from digging around here I used many of the ideas suggestions I came across. 1. Foamed the truck with dish soap. I wanted to remove all the old wax etc. 2. Hand washed with the two bucket system with a micro fiber mitt - Still using dish soap. 3. Used a leaf blower to dry it off, then used a micro fiber drying towel. 4. Did a minor amount of paint correction - McGuire's Scratch x 2.0 5. Clay bar'd the whole truck - McGuire's Clay Kit 6. Added a layer of Adam's paint sealant 7. Waxed with Adams butter wax. 8. Used McGuire's Hot Shine on the tires. This is the first time I ever used any Adam's products. I was quite impressed with the ease of use. Tho I'm not sure about the butter wax. I do have to admit that at that point, I was having a hard time keeping the truck in the shade. It just seamed to not apply nice and even for me. Over all I am happy with the results. I thank everyone for all the good tips. What is a good tire dressing that gives that really wet look and lasts? Any other wax suggestions that would really make the paint pop out at you?
I just put these tires on my truck. I only have about 400 miles on them, so I can't comment much. But they are much better than the Continentals that came with the truck when dealing with the snow and ice here in the northeast. They look cool too.
I use Husky front and rear. They fit well and have full coverage and don't slide around. In the rear I have the Husky under seat storage so I did not get the rear mat that goes fully under the seat. I didn't want to have to remove everything to take the back mat out. I like Husky.
Hey All, Been hanging around reading on all the news, ideas, tips, tricks and opinions. Finally decided to create an account. I have a 2018 GMC Sierra Elevation 1500 and a 1991 Chevy Silverado (My Sons First truck/Driving project). Just figured I would drop in and say "Hello". Thanks Tom
