    Oxidation Removal

    I know this has probably been asked a gazillion times,

    But what Meguiar's product do I use to remove oxidation from the hood of a white Toyota Tundra and what is the procedure for doing it correctly??

    Sorry for the redundant question and thanks for your responses.

    You are working by hand? How old is the vehicle, how bad is the oxidation?

    There are a couple options, so let us know a little more.

    Upland to Irvine is a reasonable drive. I would highly recommend taking one of Mike’s detailing classes.

    Sorry, I forgot

    It's a friends 2001 White Toyota Tundra. It's a light oxidation and is confined on the hood of the truck, everything else appears to be relatively fine.

    Yup, by hand.....

    I guess you guys are planning to do a weekend detailing for it.. so here are two options for you:

    Option 1:

    1. Wash - Wash with a good wash like Gold Class or Nxt, using the 2-bucket system.

    2. Clay - Clay the paint using Meguiars Quick Clay. This can be hard to find in stores, may need to order over the phone. Clay Magic is an ok substitute.

    3. Clean - Clean using ScratchX. This can be applied with a foam applicator, or a piece of terry cloth/even coat applicator for a little more aggressiveness if needed. This can be a little time consuming, so you'll be glad to each do half. Be sure to read the how to remove swirls/oxidation article in the how-to section.

    4. Polish - Use a polish like DC#2 to restore the paint some more.

    5. Wax - Nxt Tech wax may be a good wax to start with.


    Option 2:

    1. Wash - as above

    2. Clay - as above

    3. ColorX - This is a fantastic one-step product. Apply it with some passion, working it in well, using a terry cloth or Even Coat Applicator.

    4. Wax - Follow up with Nxt wax.

    Obviously, these are for the whole truck. Just work the cleaners and polish in with a little more passion on the oxidized areas.

    Here is some more good reading:
