Default Detailed a nasty Tacoma

This this was horrible. It was super chalky and no reflection whatsoever. Easily my hardest detail.

Before and after in order.


Look at that hood!






















Look at the wheels before and compare.

In my parts, those are crazy expensive and hard to find for a recent/current mass-produced used truck.
Country boys know what that are and how great they are for ACTUAL off-road use. You simply can't find one for a good price.
Even some folks I know who have a showy American truck, have a well used Taco for actual hunting and fishing duties . . . even if they don't talk about it (or even run a Ford or Chevy sticker on the front and back with a still-remaining beat-up TRD sticker still on the side).

That pretty much sums up Kentucky as well. 14inch lift for the F-150/Silverado and they cry when its dirty. Od Taco ran hard and put away wet, they can always know will run again.

Sam, looks great. How long did it take to do your transformation? I know some of us like a challenge,but that's amazing.The only problem that I can see is that others will want you to do the same with their lost cause. A trend is in the making! lol.

You could go national, offer an IPO on the stock market, like "young wipper snappers" do (Gabby Hase on the Roy Rogers tv show) and call it "Sam's Sensationals", sell it and make a fortune!
