2005 Dodge Ram SRT10

The truck has led a rough life and was being used as a work truck for quite a few years. The truck was now being cleaned up to retire from a work truck and more of a personal use fun vehicle. A friend of mine was doing some mechanical work on this truck and had posted some pictures. I noticed right away how poor the paint looked in his pictures and he mentioned the owner would likely be interested in having the truck done. I did a test spot for him to show the owner, and we settled on a multi stage paint correction to clean the paint up to a respectable level.

Before Photo

This V10 beast is certainly in need of a bath.

Before photo of the front end.

Notice the heavy swirling on the passenger side front fender, this is what pretty much the entire vehicle looks like.

Lots of swirled and random scratches on the passenger side of the bed.

Good amount of dust and dirt on the front end.

Wash Process

Dirty wheels with tires that are in desperate need of a cleaning. notice how brown the tire appears.

First step of the cleaning process was to clean up the wheels and tires.

Strong foam pre-soak to start the cleaning process of the body.

The bottom of this picture shows how the compound process would leave the paint hazy looking. This is called marring, which was then cleaned up during the polishing process leaving a nice deep black finish.
