    Rust.....
    I just scored my first "real truck", a 2003 Tundra Limited with 122k miles. Got it at a discount from my sister. Shocked what a 13 year old Tundra sells for in NY. Anyhow, the truck was my brother-in-laws who had passed away so it has some special meaning. All blubbering aside, it needs a good buffing/polishing to remove the oxidation. Any recommendations? I have a good Griots d/a to help me out.

    Everything. Literally.
    If you're not handy with a buffer I'd just recommend you take it somewhere bro. If you buff in one spot for too long you can rub your clear coat off and have a whole mother issue to deal with. I just got my entire truck buffed and waxed for about 150$.

    Thanks for the welcome! Kinda bummed right now as my mechanic says the frame rot is pretty serious and the rear "banjo" is rusted and leaking fluid. UGH! Suddenly, buying it on the cheap isn't working for me......
