    I finally finish detailing my 99' 4Runner from top to bottom after 3 consecutive days ; Here is a summary of what I did (scroll down for pics)...

    1) Wash
    2) Clay Kit
    3) Ultimate Compound
    4) Scratch X 2.0 on isolated areas (Ex: Doors, etc.)
    5) Color X on isolated areas (Ex: Rear View Side Mirrors, etc.)
    6) NXT Tech Wax 2.0 (2 thin coats total)




















    Using Ultimate Protectant...

    That was a lot of work you did to bring your baby back to life. Now that you have the products and the experience hopefully you can keep it looking that way with a lot less effort.

    Very good job. One of the nicest transformations that I have seen on a white vehicle.

    Nice work, I like the attention to detail.

    The paint looks nice and crisp.

    Nice job. Having a white Tundra myself, I know the challenge to really get it to show the deep shine compared to a dark vehicle. But you did it and it looks great!

    Congratulations. Very good work. White is not the easiest paint to make it look that crisp and good. Looks very good.
    quality creates its own demand

    Yup. I didn't really know how to take care of my paint before knowing Meguiar's; Meguiar's makes really amazing products, and I don't think I am going to buy anything else but Meguiar's from now on!

    Totally agree, at first, I couldn't figure out why white paint in a way is harder to achieve mirror glaze condition, that is, until I added another 2 coats of Tech Wax 2.0. (I used to use ICE clear liquid wax before using Meguiar's; ICE products doesn't seem to work, another reason I switched to Meguiar's!)
