    wow great job! That must of been a long day or two doing both of those trucks. Glad that your family was also able to join in on the fun, they may of thought otherwise. Just wondering, how much polish would you go through doing one of the larger trucks?

    Thank you all for the kind words and feed back very much appreciated, family and I appreciate it. My wife has been reading the feed back and she too appreciates it. This was definitely a team effort and yes I owe my family big for this one..well not necessarily owe but more like they have earned a treat ;) Wife has already hinted on her price and same goes for my little girl but I'm more then happy to award them as they both worked hard on these fire trucks, again thank you for the kind words :hippie:

    Thank you, glad you enjoyed it :peace: As for correcting the roof on an SUV, I just use a latter tall enough to get my self up there and stand on the latter and lean over to do the roof, it's not the most comfortable area to work on but it gets done, hope this helps.

    Glad you enjoyed it, as for the amount of polish. Well once the pad is well primed you use just as much polish as when polishing a regular vehicle...maybe a little bit extra due to larger flat panels but I wouldn't say it's significant. What doesn't last is the Optimum Tire, these huge tires take lots of product to dress oh and LSP, in this case DG but other then that it's really no different then a normal vehicle...well plus the size :giggle:

    Hey Al, thank you for the kind words my friend very much appreciated. I'm very glad I listened to you and many others that put me in the path of DG it's a great product. The owner of this outfit always requests DG as he has noticed the difference once you rinse the vehicle. DG is my go to sealant now :thumb: Glad you enjoyed it and good to see you around my friend :peace:

    Glad you enjoyed it and thank you for the feed back, very much appreciated. :nod: Family sure came in handy :thumb:

    Well it all depends on the products your using and how much you value your time, it only took me one fire truck to figure out the cost break down...breaking down cost is actually easy if you reverse engineer it :thumb:
