According to Tristate Trucks, a typical semi truck drives about 45,000 miles per year. To put that into perspective, with the circumference of Earth measured at 24,901 miles, that is like driving around the entire planet Earth almost twice. With most of their drive time at high speeds and constant exposure to the elements, these vehicles take a beating. It's not surprising to see a semi only a few years old starting to show their age with fading paint, rust spots, scratches and dents.
This firetruck red Peterbilt 379 was brought into MARS of Billings to see if we could restore the exterior surfaces. The clearcoat was extremely oxidized and faded with only the spots under the decals somewhat protected. All of the exposed chrome was dull and faded but overall in pretty decent shape.
Our team was up to the challenge and started polishing up all of the chrome exterior pieces. With our years of experience and tools in vehicle polish, our team was able to get the chrome finish to shine once again. As for the paint surface, we applied RestorFX Industrial Clearcoat Repair to every painted surface on this massive semi truck. After the initial application, you could already see the difference. The dull red paint turned to a vibrant glossy finish. All of the scratches and haze were completely removed leaving what looks like a brand new semi without having to repaint anything... it was truly remarkable.
RestorFX completely addresses surface damage to permanently restore a vehicle's exterior without repainting. It maintains the integrity of a vehicle by not cutting away vital clear coat and eliminates the need to repaint a car. Once treated with RestorFX, your vehicle will have a permanent durable finish that meets all industry standards for cleaning, servicing and maintenance.
