    BTW my alarm beep is noticeably lower after all this work, I imagine the pressure washer dislodged something into it

    clean the truck with wax-less wash (can use dish soap or a strip wash) then I wiped it down with wax and tar remover (can use paint thinner on a rag too if you want obviously if poured on can dmg plastic)

    Adhesive promoter ( clear looking, very light coat this still will run like crazy https://www.amazon.com/Dupli-Color-CP199-Adhesion-Promoter-Primer/dp/B0007UAXJQ )

    SEM trim Black ( 2-3 light coats -> I did 4) will not be covered 1st one you want it to lay on pretty flat https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FSYT6SK?ie=UTF8 )

    DO NOT NEED TO SAND

    I am a auto collision tech.. if anyone has any questions just ask! im probably going to repaint the truck next year.. paints coming off the roof and hood is faded some thank god its white so it is very unnoticeable

    Thanks..I think I'll give it a quick wash with diluted APC and then wipe with a panel prep. How long did it take the adhesion promoter to dry?

    by the time you go from one end to the other its already dry essentially just make sure its covered (can hit it lightly twice if you want).. 3-4 minutes you'll see it flashes real quick
