You're welcome man. I'm sure you could have good results out of the Griots stuff, I know that's what my bro in law uses, and he wont' use anything else. Plus I recently saw their stuff at Autozone so that sure makes things easy.

The main thing with polishing I've found is to really take your time. Let the machine do it's job and don't be scared to bump up the speed. I run mine wide open after I get the product spread, and move pretty slow.

Yeah I love that color too. I haven't ever really gotten into nice wax and polishing and all until this truck, but now that I am I can't wait to get a deep metallic color and see what I can do for the depth with the right products.

Perfect you can practice on mine. When I get mine back I'll hit it with an Orange pad and some of that chem guys polish and update in here. I'll never use another wal Mart product again after working with some of this other stuff.

I don't really know, I've never really had that problem. I'd try a clay bar to see if the stain is on top of the clear, if it was then that would probably work. If not, a light polishing compound would take the top of the clear off and hopefully the black stain as well.

After you get it off wax the **** out of that area to try to keep it off.

If you're ever in the midwest, feel free to stop by my place in St.Louis and do some work on my truck! That is gorgeous!!

I just made a purchase from CG. Got a little bit of everything. Im going to try out the Mr.Pink Super Suds soap, follow up with the medium duty clay bar, then the White Wax, and finish up with a coat of V7 quick detailer. Cant wait to get this stuff in and give it a go
