Thanx I appreciate that. I had a slight set back with the polishing of the bed of the truck. For some odd reason the paint started to lift while I was polishing it.So long story short it is in the pond.

Ahh that sucks. Have you asked anyone on the forum what might have happened? I'm curious to know what it could of been. Maybe some grease/dirt or possibly could of been the weather you painted in? Could be a number of things.

No idea what went wrong.I think the paint might not have been 100% cured when I started to polish it.

Small update the cab is all polished.

Luckily so far all I see that I have to repair is re-attaching a wheel tub. It should be back in primer tomorrow.

Thanx for lookin'
