2004 Lincoln Navigator

This truck has never been waxed since purchasing it new 3 years ago according to the owner. This was very evident the minute water hit the surface.

Wheels were cleaned with a brightener (more on this to come... check back later on this blog for more details on this product) and a pressure washer (no mechanical agitation).

A diluted degreaser was used to strip the paint via PW-er. The paint was then clayed.

Polishing was a one-step polish using Optimum Compound and a Lake Country Green CCS pad at about 1,200 rpm. (Optimum Compound was the miracle polish for me this week! It seemed like it is able to cure just about any defect from light swirls to Mesothelioma!)

We finished it off with Poorboy's EX as an LSP. This worked fantastic!

This is some powerful stuff!

This spot was damaged when the bug deflector came loose at high speeds at did a number on the hood!

This area was buffed to a flawless shine.

The results!

The Navigator wheel stuff looks pretty amazing for the neglected wheels. That got my attention bigtime!
