Take some all purpose cleaner and go to town on those tires!!  They're browning like crazy.

Planning a full detail in the spring, tires will be getting done too.....or they will be getting swapped for All Terrains lol

Tried out turtle wax's new hybrid solutions ceramic polish and wax yesterday. Applied it with a da polisher. It looks great as a wax and I noticed that it did remove a lot of the light swirl marks in the paint, which was a nice bonus. I didnt test any of the hydrophobic properties as it says 24 hrs to cure.

We got a bit of rain today. I drove the truck to get some things in town and I noticed that all the water on the truck was beading up nicely and there was no sheeting on any flat surfaces. Thats a win in my books.

Gonna apply a second coat when I get a chance.

Added  colour matched door handle and tailgate handle covers. May still paint the actual handles down the road, but I'm happy with the covers for now.

Haven't done much with the truck in awhile but I did get a bottle of "Shine Armour" in the mail. Decided to give it a try and see what all the hype is about. I washed and dried the truck before using this product.


My thoughts:

Super easy to apply. Wipe on, wipe off. It did give the paint a bit more of a glossy look compared to when I wax it. It does nothing for existing scratches though and actually makes them more apparent and obvious. Truck looks great at a distance but as soon as you go closer, the scratches and scuffs on the body are magnified with this stuff. I have yet to test the hydrophobic properties.

Overall, its a great product, but I will only be using it as a finishing product on a clean truck.


PS, I didn't do the wheels or tires so go easy on me lol ?





It does a good job of causing water to bead up and move off the surface of the truck but definitely not as good as they advertise. I would almost bet the vehicles shown in the ad have 3+ applications. I had just enough in one bottle for one application. Thats not much considering my truck is a rcsb. The upside is that the truck has been easier to keep clean since applying it.

Did something subtle today. Tinted the turn signals. Driver side is not tinted, passenger side is in the first photo. Thought the tint I ordered was darker but this turned out pretty good anyway.
