    After washing, I used a nanoskin to decontaminate the paint. I also used Sonax Fallout remover to get rid of the iron deposits on the lower sections of the doors and wheels. After that, I used my PC 7424XP with a Buff and shine blue pad with Meguire's Ultimate polish. Then I used their red pad to apply Klasse sealant glaze. It's supposed to be salt resistant, UV proof, scratch resistant and last around a year. We will see on that one. I'm satisfied with the look, if it looks and feels this good in the fall I will be happy.

    Not sure if I posted pics of the rock rails after I herculined them. But there they are!

    clay barring is highly under-rated. It is amazing what that does to restore paint.

    Nicely done guys.
