What is the best approach with cleaning my truck?
First step to do a quick evaluation of the condition of your truck. Be sure to consider the tires, wheels, pain, trim and interior which include the headliner, carpet, upholstery and gauges. From that point you can pinpoint the materials and tools you will need, as well as the amount of time needed to finish it. Another point to consider is picking a good location on where to do the detailing. It is advisable to do it in an open shade. Be sure you have provisions for water and power for the buffer and vacuum.
After you have finished assessing just what your truck needs, you may find yourself a bit overwhelmed with all the work that needs to be done. A good approach is to break down jobs into smaller tasks. A good tip is to do any scratch repair or spot removal first before polishing and waxing. Here is a recommended schedule you can follow:
Wash – Weekly

Sealer/glaze paint – Every 8-12 weeks
