The wife says i,m borderline ocd...i just call it a new hobby.waterspots and bugsplats are my new nemisis.actually have a love/ hate relationship with the new truck.Black paint is a bitch.every little scratch just sticks out like a sore thumb.so now i,m a ameteur detailer.spend way to much time watching pros on yutube and whining about the weather to hot to sunny cant do anything let alone just a simple wash...maybe she,s right. cry2

That's why light silver and white are popular colors down south...the dirt and imperfections don't show so readily...

Agreed," gee wiz" thats a badass black truck,great deal,low miles " lets buy it"...little did i know.black paint is a bitch.the front spoiler scratches are most likely from when we drive in from the road to our front field and then down and throughto the new boat shed.keep it cut down all sticks gone.just guessin.should have bought a pos..??

You can buff the plastic but be careful! I did a Honda Odyssey front bumper once and the paint got too hot and melted / peeled off.
