    70's Ford Pickup SS paint

    I met this guy through my job at O'reilly Auto Parts. He needed to get this old Ford shined back up. I only tackeld the paint with a single step polish.

    Method:

    I would polish with M105 and since the paint was so dry I would have to apply the Megs #7 and rub pretty good to get the M105 off but intern it would hydrate the SS paint then would wipe off.

    Wash:
    Megs Gold Class and Dawn

    Machine used:
    GG6 DA
    Elbow grease

    Products:
    Megs M105
    Megs #7
    TarX

    LSP:
    Evershine World Class Wax





    Before:


    After: Oops missed a little LSP


    50/50

    Dull and lifeless


    Hood all shined up



    Finished all up!


    This was a very fun project to do. It was the first time to really tackle SS paint I should of charged the guy more but it was a learning experince. He was throughly please he was amazed.

    Oxidation came off quite well, great results, hopefully you'll have a repeat customer.
    Maybe you could get him to pay for the rims to be done next?

    I've seen that truck, you must be in the Gulfport/Biloxi area. Good work for sure!

    Yes very good turn around but he is just looking for some simple rims. Didnt want to bother with these badboys even though I REALLY WANTED to.
