My truck has taken a beating lately and I barely have time to wash it. Tonight I washed it and about crapped my pants when I saw how bad it was swirled up. The tailgate was the worst I have seen so I started messing with it.

Used some Revive Polish, hand applied with a Flip Applicator. The results were OK but it needed a little more aggressive polish. So I got out the Porter Cable and some Fine Machine Polish. I wasn't going for perfect, but needed to slick it up some. So here are a few pics.

I am trying to get the whole truck done but I had to call it a night. :(

If I can't get to it tomorrow night I'll get back on it Sunday. :tmc:

Big difference. I like revive, it's good product for hand polishing.
What is a 'Flip Applicator'?

It's a foam applicator with two different grades of foam. One is blue for the Revive, the other is orange for Swirl & Haze Remover. It has a pretty stiff black foam center so I like it better than the Hex Grip Applicators. The Hex Apps are just too soft for my grip and they soak up the polish real bad and it squishes all over my hands. :lol:

I had that happen to me too. But if I sprayed detail spray on the applicator and did another section without adding more wax, it helped. I'll have to wait before buying some of those applicators. Wife is threatening to take my credit card. :lol:
