    Got some bad pinstripes from swiping the only brush on the trail- some of the stripes were fairly deep as my fingernail would catch them.
    I washed, clayed, and polished with Meguars M205 and then waxed with Megs ultimate wax. I used a drill with a foam pad (from a Mothers Headlight Restoration Kit) for the scratches and hand applied the wax for the rest of the truck. Super happy it worked great.

    I read some detailer sites and followed the following recommendations:
    On non scratched areas I used a foam pad by hand and sprayed a light mist of water on paint before applying- it came out like a mirror.
    On the pinstripes I used a micro fiber pad with extra M205 and rubbed hard and followed that up with a foam pad and a mist. Worked very good.
