I used 1000 and then 2000 grit sand paper wet method. Then I applied Mcguire's PLASTX in about 3 coats. Worked really well. Total time: 35 mins

I bought some limiteds a few days ago, should be here by friday. I was a little worried how they might look on a laredo. But that would also be nice to upgrade the front to a limited style.
