    Here she is after we wiped her down with DP Waterless Auto Wash. The paint looks shiny but don't be fooled, we haven't started sanding yet.





    Here's the peel under our florescent lights...

    Machine sanding with Mirka Abralon and a Porter Cable 7424XP. This is the same process we used at the last boat detailnig class to sand down a 26' Regulartor Center Console.






    Hand sanding with Mirka Abralon....

    Note to self.... always focus on what you're doing when using a rotary buffer... :D

    Machine waxing.... the only way to fly!



















    Here's a thin, uniform coat of wax. We used all Pinnacle products on this project and for the wax we used Pinnacle Liquid Souveran.

    This was a cool truck to work on and very intricate areas to sand, but overall the finally outcome was an incredible finish. The sandpapers were super easy and very durable to work with.

    Talked to the owner yesterday and he thanked us again.The truck is in the paint shop getting paint on the bottom edge of the running boards where the other painter (who hopefully has retired his gun) was too lazy to get.
