Now onto my neighbor's truck, Mazda B2500 (aka Ford Ranger) He was selling this truck, so he wanted it detailed in and out. The paint probably hadn't seen wax in years, it was dull and rough.

Wash with ONR
Clay
Wash again with ONR
Test panel with DACPx2 didn't cut enough, so I moved onto the Menzerna Intesive Polish w/red cutting pad. All the swirls were not removed, but it was worlds better!
Followed that with Menzerna Final Polish on a white pad
Topped with Meguiar's NXT
The bed topper was oxidized pretty bad, so I only did the NXT
Front/Rear chrome was cleaned by hand with Klasse All In One
Wheels/tires/wheel wells cleaned with Meguiar's APC
Tires and wheel wells were dressed with Meguiar's Hyperdressing
Stoners on all glass
Bed liner was wiped down with APC

Interior was wiped down with APC
Dressed with Megiuar's Interior Quik Detailer (amazing stuff)
Carpets shampooed with Top of the Line Carpet Cleaner via Bissel Little Green Machine

Pics:

Very dull paint
