i washed it down with dish soap and the garden hose. next i used very fine grade sandpaper all the complete truck, then used a soft clean towel and rubbing alcohol to clean the truck one last time. ok its time, started spraying edges and creases.

That's looking really sweet! Do the windows just pop out or did you have to cut them out? I might just leave them off my Escalade if I ever get around to working on it.

Nice work!
Maybe dig up a set of Silverado tires for it next, they have a little more traction off-road.

And then you'll start playing with LEDs and light it up
