    I turn on the water slowly and flood the paint letting road debris dust slowly loosen and make its way off the car. To dry, compressed air then pat dry a little using microfiber rag if need be. Always cool temps in the shade to avoid water spots. I still haven't washed it since new paint went on 6 months ago, black is most noticeable for swirls and spiderwebbing so check weather before going out and try my best not to contact with acid rain.

    The correct way to wash a car is the 2 bucket method and a CRSpotless which I have and would never do with out ever again.

    LOL The crspotless is the real deal. The main issue with it is the cost of refills. I can wash my black 07 yukon on a 100 degree day in the direct sun and get zero spots. :cool:

    My father has owned a detail shop for 40 plus years. He claims drying them off with a towel or shammy is where those scratches come from. He uses his shop vac, it has detachable leaf blower and he now blow drys all his cars before waxing. It does a great job, you can do around the doors,trunk and engine compartment
