    Dont really get sunburned that much as my skin is quite similar to leather after 20 years of farming.I did see though you were sporting the RUDOLF nose yesterday.All in good fun.

    Pictures on the way...
    My co-worker Jeff took a bunch as did myself and Wes and a few other people... one thing for sure, we have plenty of pictures showing how we buffed-out and detailed the Meguiar's Special Events Truck.

    This first one is of the team still present at about 7:45pm, right after we finished the job and right before it got dark.




    From left to right....

    Jeff, John, Wes, Jay, Robert, Tim, Frank, Andy and me....






    This picture is one I took using my iPhone this morning right before 7:00am while it was still dark and the Show Car Garage lighted sign was still on and reflecting off the side of the Meguiar's truck.




    Here's the actual sign....





    We moved the truck to make Autogeek warehouse bay doors accessible for deliveries and then later it rained. Since everyone loves to see water beading shots here's a few pictures of the truck today and the water beading shots....










    Haven't looked through all the pictures but here's one of the coolest shots taken yesterday by Robert using my iPhone...




    More to come....

    Here's two more "after" shots I took this morning....






    Now let me show you some before shots with the sun shining down on the paint and the Flex Swirl Finder Light revealing the true condition as well as the flash off my trusty, dusty Canon Rebel T5i

    Re: Meguiar's Big Rig Extreme Makeover - Pictures & Videos!

    As is the norm around here, I try to document the current condition of all the projects that go through Autogeek's Show Car Garage or in this case are parked out in front of the garage.


    It was a challenge to get pictures using the sun because it was partly cloudy outside, there were row of trees along the side of the truck and even with the sun low in the sky it was shining pretty high on the truck which forced me to squat down to take these shots....

























    I was told this was the result of some shoddy work done at a truck wash...
