Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.

Wax is well.... wax. Protective layer, adds shine, etc..

Polishing takes down the layer of clear to remove scratches/swirls/whatever.

Yes. Polish contains some very fine abrasives.

As much as I hate putting in the effort to wash, polish, wax my truck, it's well worth the pain it saves in the long haul.

I've had cars that went to absolute crap in a year or two being out in the sun without washing and waxing. Older cars of course. But the sun is powerful.

I takes me about 3 hours to strip, wash, wax. That's a lot easier than fixing peeling clear coat and sun damage.

Nice looking truck! And while all that might be a royal pain, it is at least a little easier to keep it looking clean between those detail jobs
