Mothers don't let your cowboy grow up to be a baby. "Simple as pie, or making a batch of frozen ready-baked oatmeal cookies is how I would describe how easy the process of claying the paint job on your truck is. Of course if I wasn't hungry maybe I wouldn't put it into these terms.
There's a story on here somewhere that I did at least a year ago where I clayed the factory paint on my '72 Ford F-100 with Mother's products. Nothing has changed I still consider Mother's clay to be one of the best car & truck detailing products out there, but I did think of a few things to add. I've only bought three new trucks in my life, and never a new car. Its not because I think cars are only for girls, or anything, I just think its a lot of money to spend for something that can only haul people around. Ever tried to get a '49 Harley-Davidson into the trunk of a Toyota Prius after the Hog lunched a transmission? Hogs, lunch? Sorry you guys I'll eat something before I get on here next time and blog. My 2000 S-10 is pure white, my '05 GMC is pure black. I just spent the last two days after I got home from work claying out the paint on 'em. Both colors have problems that are unique to light, and dark colors (Colours if you are Canadian, or some English guy that landed a gig on one of those Biker Build-Off shows) respectively. Starting with black, the presence of all colors in pigment theory, and the total absence of color in light theory the big problem is getting swirl-marks in the paint. Don't worry about swirl-marks at this point because they are addressed in the very last stages of a detail job. White on the other hand always seems to have a problem with rust spots caused by anything from fallout from a nearby highway, or freeway to parking next to some idiot that's running a body-grinder... Well I'd love to finish this, but its 8:30 at night and the little woman just rang the dinner bell. She used to honk the horn in one of my classic trucks until I went to Sears and bought her a Bob Villa Model dinner bell. I'll be back tomorrow and finish this I promise.
