Truck is at my detailer now. Scratches getting bugged out. Ceramic getting stripped and redone. Side mirrors getting repainted. Need to buy new B pillars. But I did have a lot of fun. In the future I am sticking to wide open trails! Anyone have stories to share?

    We were leaving town after our first off-road trip covered in sand and mud and passed a sparkling clean and shiny raptor. My wife looked at me and said “think he offroads?”

    As far as I can tell I got away with minimal to no pinstriping. Place was pretty wide open.

    You in Florida? The metallic grey should hide scratches well given that it has metallic flakes in its coat. Most of it should buff out given that you had ceramic.

    Yeah. We were in Ocala. Pretty cool place just went down one skinny trail that screwed us up. Hitting the bumps by the power lines was incredible. My kids were in the backseat hysterically laughing and smiling the entire time.

    My detail guy told me he should be able to get 99% out. Picking it up tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    Looks like is was wet sanded. The marks go back and forth not in one direction.

    Looks like that'll buff out. As long as the scratches don't go through the base coat it should look pretty good.
