    That is a nice looking truck? Is that special paint that was applied?

    The finish was very nice when it arrived except just from wear-n-tear and repeated wiping there were the normal light or shallow swirls throughout the finish plus some random, isolated deeper scratches here and there. I machine sanded 1 scratch out and leveled another area with some surface texture and then removed my sanding marks.

    The rest of the car we simply machine polished using DA Polishers, Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish on black Lake Country 5.5" Polishing Pads and then machine waxed the paint using Wolfgang Fuzion.

    The paint has been waxed around 5 times since the owner took possession of the pick-up from the painter and polishing effectively removed all the previous coats of wax and any other light surface impurities plush the swirls and shallow scratches.

    So it wasn't in horrible shape when it arrived but it was in need of a light polishing to restore the paint back to show car quality.

    On page 37 of my how-to book, I list 11 paint condition catagories...

    The paint on this custom hotrod pick-up fell into category 2. Excellent Condition we restored it to category 1. Show Car Quality.

    I did my best to capture the light swirls, scratches and RIDS but I have not looked through all the pictures taken with my camera today. My norm is to always document as best as I can the defects in the paint before we start machine polishing but until I start going through the pics I don't know if captured them or not.

    Awesome job. That is one amazing truck. I absolutely love the color. You can tell the owner appreciates keeping it looking nice because from the before pics it wasn't in bad shape overall
