    Just wanted to contribute to the community. So this past weekend, I decided to repaint the grill and headlight bezels and also buff the entire truck. Came out good, definitely a noticeable difference. It took me all day to to both things, but Here are the pics before or after from the job.

    Supplies:
    Buffer from Harbor Freight
    Wool Buffing Pad from Harbor freight
    Started with Meguiars Fine Cut #2 but then i ran low so I went and bought Meguiars Ulitmate Compund. Both are phenomenal.

    Spray paint:
    150 grit Sand paper
    Rustoleum 2x Gloss Black (primer & paint mixed)
    Rustoleum Automotive Clear Coat
