 :thumbsup: pepboys came through today so got the glossifier and was able to do the wheels, steps, grill and bowtie. The difference in the look of the truck is amazing. I just got it all finished so will have to add pictures tom since the sun has gone down.  Was able to fix the tailgate as well little rod clip cost all of 5 bucks and took 5 minutes to install.

Just did 3 heavy coats of black dip to really cover all the imperfections and 1 light one. Then I just did 1 coat of glossifier. I am going to to maybe 3-4 cuz I want a really good gloss finish like the paint on the truck
