    HD Speed - Quick One Step on Ford F150

    It's been a while since I used HD Speed. I was reminded today how nice of a product it is, especially for quick One-Steps or AIOs (all-in-one). No dusting, easy wipe off and nice results.

    My neighbor and friend across the street is doing some electrical work at my house and I did a quick one-step on his F150 in exchange.

    His F150 sits outside 24/7 and had its share of swirls and water spots.

    Steps:

    Wash - rinseless wash with McKee's 37 N-914 and Big Red Sponge.
    Clay - Speedy Clay Towel and McKee's 37 N-914 as the lube.
    Dry - Cobra Waffle Weave Towels.
    Polish - Flex 3401 with LC 6.5" CCS Orange Pad.
    Wheels - rinseless washed the wheel faces with McKee's 37 N-914, wheel brush and black microfiber towel.
    Tires - Blackfire All-In-One Trim & Tire Protectant, cleans and dresses at the same time, nice product but I don't think it's available anymore.

    HD Speed did a nice job for a quick detail. The key word is "quick" since I didn't have a lot of time to spend on the truck and wanted to clean it up and get it looking nice.

    My neighbor was real happy about how it came out.

    Wow! Those are impressive results. Great work. I enjoy using Speed. I use the CCS orange pads as well. My only gripe with Speed is pad staining and removal from pads.

    How long did it take you to polish the truck?

    I know what you mean, it's a little more difficult cleaning AIOs from pads so I dedicated my CCS pads just for AIOs like HD Speed.

    It took me about 4.5 hours from start to finish and about 2.5 hours for the polishing step. I did about 4 section passes per section on the hood and roof and 2 or 3 section passes per section on the rest of the panels with moderate to fast arm speed. The hood and roof were in the worst shape so I gave those areas extra attention.

    I think he got the better deal also. My initial plan was to wash the truck and maybe polish the hood but when I saw how nice the hood came out I got carried away.

    Frank, really nice work! Speed dispatched those swirls and scratches nicely! Great seeing your work as usual.
