How To Wash REALLY Big Trucks! – Toyota Tundra – Chemical Guys Car Care


Welcome to another day in the Detail Garage. Today me and Nick are going to show you the
top 5 detailing tricks to washing this big ass truck. I want to start with the tips before we begin. Tip number one: Use a good pressure washer
and a really good foam cannon. Tip number two: You wanna use a… Tip number two: You’ll need a Big Mofo to
clean the sides of the truck, this way we cover a lot of surface area. Tip number three: Using the Wash Mop, which
allows me to get the top of this truck and prevents cross contamination between sides
and top. If you look really closely you’ll see all
this dirt and grime from off roading and commuting to car shows that this truck has done. We don’t want to contaminate the top from
the bottom filth. Tip number four: We’re going to use Extreme
Body Wash & Wax which is a highly lubricated soap. Another cool thing about this soap is it actually
has wax in it. If you come close you’ll see the soap looks
a little funny and that is because there is a lot of wax in here. Some people wanted a true wash and wax soap
so this is the answer, it also has a really cool grape scent. Tip number five: We are going to use After
Wash teamed up with a great towel, that will make sure we dry this truck really fast and
reduce water spots. We’ll go straight into the job, I’ll get everything
set up as you can see our pressure washer is ready to go. We have a wheel bucket prepared, we also have
two body buckets set up. One with clear water and the other with soap,
I haven’t put the soap in it yet but we have to start by placing the Dirt Traps in. When you insert the Dirt Trap don’t put them
in straight down because that will trap the air bubbles, instead place them in at an angle
and press them to the bottom. These Dirt Traps do fit any twelve in bucket
so don’t work if you don’t have these particular buckets it will fit but these buckets look
a lot cooler. Now lets prepare our soap bucket, all I need
is an ounce of soap in here. I’ll also get the Foam Cannon ready, I’ve
already filled the container to the 900 mark and I’l fill it with soap until it reads 1000. When you set up your Foam Cannon don’t shake
them because then you will get a bunch of suds inside the bottle, all you need to do
is gently tighten the top and stir. This mixes everything in the bottle which
is turning this nice purple color and it is ready. So Nick looks a little bored, so lets start
by foaming the wheels first and then we can start scrubbing and then we can move on to
the body. I want to stress that you start with the wheels
so you aren’t contaminating the freshly washed paint because then you are working backwards. While I’m cleaning the wheels I will also
tackle the undercarriage. So if you come closer you can see the undercarriage
is really dirty. I’ll make sure to clean it really well because
Nick is going to dress this soon. The wheels are already clean because Nick
polished them with a Ball Buster but I want to make sure these wheels are completely clean. We’ll clean the barrel and spokes for the
perfect finish. So we’re go to rinse the wheels, then soap
it with Diablo Wheel Gel and then start scrubbing with the brushes. After that I’ll rinse everything off with
and move on to the next wheel. Lets get started. Got everything degreased and I through on
a layer of foam so we have extra lubrication as we scrub to prevent scratching. Everything is degreased with Sticky Wheel
Gel and Diablo Gel for the rims. Now with the Stiffy Blue Brush I’ll scrub
the tire down to make sure I get all the grime out of the knobs so when I dress it, it looks
beautiful. The foam really helps to pick up a lot of
the dirt and teamed up with an excellent degreaser it’ll make this tire look really clean once
it is rinsed off. I’ll now take my second brush which is the
Green Flagged Tip Brush and I’ll glide over the face. I don’t really need to scrub because Nick
already cleaned it but I want to make sure I pick up any left over dirt off. Lastly using the third brush which is my Long
Handle Brush, this is going to help me scrub the undercarriage. So now that everything is scrubbed down and
the foam is still on the surface it is going to help with the rinse off. Lets rinse it off and we can see how clean
it really is. Come on baby! After the rinse off you can see that these plastics
look really clean. The reason you want to get these plastics
really clean is because when you dress them it is going to last a lot longer and the dressing
is going to stick a lot longer. The reason why we want the dressing to stick
is because this truck is lifted and you can see underneath, all the suspension which looks
really ugly when that stuff is dirty. Also dressings help resist a lot of UV rays
while repelling stains and your truck looks really nice. Now I’m going to move on to the other wheels
and then we can start on the body. We have the bucket activated and now we need
to go into the second step which is rinsing this truck down. This will loosen any of the dirt that is sitting
on top of the surface so when I run this Big MoFo or Mop across the paint it won’t scratch. It’s simple to do, just rinse it and after
that I’ll go into the foam. Nick is going to grab the Big MoFo and do
the sides while I grab the Mop and knock out the top. This prevents cross contamination from taking
heavy dirt and grinding it into the paint on areas we have already cleaned. So lets get started. As you guys at home can see we just washing
this Tundra. By using Extreme Body Wash & Wax we took care
of the loose grime and debris that was on the surface while leaving behind a protective
layer of wax that added shine and protection. Then we hit it with the Big MoFo and the Wash
Mop to get those hard to reach areas. Now we’re going to finish it off with After
Wash, this is a drying aide that takes care of any water spots on the surface by breaking
the surface tension to prevent staining while leaving behind a freshly waxed look. So Jeremy lets get to it. So to conclude our story Nick and I did a
few things. Tip number one we used a good pressure washer
and foam cannon. After that we went into tip number two which
is Extreme Body Wash, the right chemical is important in getting a really good affect. Tip three we used the Mop and Big MoFo to
get the whole body cleaned without adding scratches or marring into the paint. Tip four we used After Wash which really helped
the water bead and add a freshly waxed look to this vehicle. Tip five Nick and I used the Elegant Edgeless
Towels to get the entire truck dry. He is going to take care of the next step
and I am going to head home. Nick thanks for helping me out.
