    3” lift, black step bars, aftermarket wheels, LT305/55R20 was this way when I brought it.
    Is it ok to Clay Bar and ceramic coating your truck paint without damaging it.
    Looking for the best way to maintain and make you paint last and look it’s best.

    Just did that to my Super White a couple days ago. White is a single stage paint so you'll need to polish truck with a fine compound like M205 or Ultimate Compound and wipe truck down with 10-15% solution of ISA before applying a coating. Well with the Mckees 37 I used anyway. Their prep polish is not enough to correct Toyota white and will leave finish slightly dull after applying the coating. Ask me how I know . Paint is super smooth and looks pretty good.

    Have you determined that it even needs claying? I'm betting likely yes, but find that out first. Provided you're no significant marring/swirls/scratches to correct, you can just refine the finish with a good polish, followed by an IPA wipedown to remove any oils prior to applying a coating.

    I posted this in another thread but thought it would work here as well.

    Went old school detailing this weekend. Started off with Adams Iron Remover. Crazy how many iron deposit were on the new paint. Followed that with CG Honeydew Snow Foam wash.

    Then is when the real fun began. First off I broke out the Nanoskin Foam Pad and clayed the car. First experience with using this and I have to say I really liked it. Got to break in the pad on your glass first and I used Nanoskin Glide as my lube for the pad.

    Next we this is where I went old school. I've always liked Duragloss products because they are simple and they just work. In todays world there are so many products and a guy can go broke trying them all. First off I used Duragloss 501. Super easy to lay it down and by the time I got the first coat down it was time to take it off which worked quickly with a micro towel.

    Then the following day I used Duragloss 105 Polish mixed with Duragloss 601 Polishing Bonding Agent. You can mix this in a 4 to 1 ratio saving you an extra step. Just put in a bottle and shake it up and off you go. I let if flash for about 4 hours before removing it with a micro cloth.

    Got to say I was very happy with the results and it was miles ahead of what it came with from the dealer.
