Z71_Denali Posted September 11, 2011 Share Posted September 11, 2011 i just got my PC this past week, just in time to do my annual detail on my daily driver, a 2010 Silverado extended cab in Summit White. Summary: I honestly don't know how i went a full year and a half of buying Adam's products without owning this polisher! my arms don't feel like jello like they do after hand polishing, and the results turned out great! i split the detail up into 3 days so i wouldn't burn myself out in the 90-100 degree weather. here's how it went... Day 1: i took a few before pics to compare when i was finished. its been about 3 weeks since i washed the truck last so it was pretty dirty with some waterspots. the interior still looked good. i detailed the inside a couple weeks ago after getting my master blaster and vac-n-blo 500. all i did on day one was inspect the interior, do the initial wash, clay barred the entire truck, then did a second wash, dried everything, then VRT'd and In&Out'd the trim/tires, and finally used UCS on the wheel wells. The Before Pics: all that was need inside was picking up some trash, cleaning the mats when i washed, and dusting the dash. now that i see this pic... i forgot to vacuum i love this katzkin leather! so soft!!! doesn't look too dirty at this point... White paint ftw!!! bird $&!+ on the hood!! water spots on all the chrome i think i need mud flaps tree sap... i dunno how that got there... i never park under a tree! the engine bay was filthy! Day 2: on the second day i just was not in the mood to do much! i was up late the night before brewing beer, and didn't wake up until noon. at that point it was extremely hot out side and i could only keep half the truck in the shade. so all i did was my test panel to see what was going to get the paint about 95% corrected. this is my daily driver, so i wasn't going for perfection. luckily i've been using Adam's on it since day one so the paint was in great shape. it's hard to believe all i did to my test panel was 1 pass of FMP!!! for day to i polished and waxed the front end and driver side doors, as well as the driver's side wheels and side steps. this was after just one pass of FMP and one coat of MSS!!! Day 3: i woke up bright and early this morning to finish up this huge detail! i'm so thankful all i'm having to do is one pass of FMP, or else i would still be out there polishing away as i type! today i polished and waxed the bed, tailgate, roof, and passenger side wheels and side step. here's out it turned out... The After: this is the best reflection i could get on a white vehicle lol i didn't really feel like wasting any products under the hood... i'll save that step if i ever end up at a car show with it... Conclusion: the truck turned out great! i don't know how i still have energy to write all this right now! its been a busy weekend for me! sold my sports car, brewed some beer, and detailed a full size pickup!!! time to go take a nap! i'll see you guys tomorrow!
