It was nice and shiny because I took advantage of my neighbour who was away on vacation and used his garage to clay my truck, which really got rid of all the contaminants and made it smooth as glass and then I put on a sealer which really brought out the shine. Sometime this month I will put a coat of carnuba wax and then a couple of coats after that.
I am able (just) to put my truck in my small garage and keep it out of the weather as we have had several severe thunder storms the last 2 weeks with hail and I am really gunshy right now.
I have spent so much time sitting in the truck, reading the manual, programming the Nav and radio system that I have next to no mileage on the truck. It reads 707 Kms, which is under 500 miles and I will have had it one month on the 2nd.. The truck will have rusted out before my first oil change at this rate.
