The only issue I have with the paint is on the upper portion of the hood near the windshield. There is a circular dip the length of the hood that water just seems to sit in and now there is dark water marks in the paint that just wont come out. I dont mind spending $ on some good products as long as the results are worth it. I remember some members speaking highly of Menzerna products. Problem is, there are SO many products I dont know where to start and I dont want a 10 step proces!!!
It can be confusing with the Menzerna line, but you'll find yourself only using a few and that's it. We'll make it easy for you with Super White.
Menzerna SIP 1500 - for light to medium/heavy correction
Menzerna SF 4000 - final jeweling polish
Menzerna PowerLock - last step sealant
So two steps and a sealant and you're finished. If you inspect it under the lights and the paint is in good shape, you could get away with SF 4000 and seal. However, if the truck is an 08 and never been corrected before, I'd wash and clay then go straight to 1500, 4000 and PowerLock.
SIP 1500 - orange pad, Griots on 3-4
SF 4000 - white pad, Griots on 2-3
PowerLock - black or red finishing pad, Griots on 2
For any heavier correction, Menzerna FG 400 cutting compound. Use with an orange pad, Griots on 3-4. It will finish down very nicely, then follow it with SF 4000 and seal.
