the best thing I have done to keep them out Matt is to rinse the entire car, then use a microfiber sponge and have two buckets, a bucket to rinse the sponge and a clean bucket for applying more soap. Then once you have it washed dry it with a leaf blower. I use the one that comes off my show vac, you get alot of the swirls from drying the car.

i do believe i have never seen anyone blow dry their car with a leaf blower- kinda makes since though- i haven't dried my car yet and I have been debating on bringing it down to a place here in town to do the car up at the beginning of the car show season, b/c they do everything for my buddies camaro but it is orange and won't show as much- may just get everything and do it myself when the time comes

Leaf blowing your black car keeps from dragging a rag over it. My buddy had a vette and used the leaf blower technique on it and when he got rid of it 5 years later the paint still looked brand new and did not have any swirls in the paint. Made me a believer, but our car had swirls when we bought it. Cry

People swear by Zaino and Rejex. Never used either but bought some Collenite from a detailer. Havent used it yet either but Scott tried it and I guess its really hard to work with.

Autotopia.org is probably the best car detailing website there is.

Did I ever give you that wax back? It has lasted on the jeep hood for several months now. I tried it on that first before using it on the solstice, worked good, but don't use to much. Its hard to get off the car if it drys.

washing a black car with 2 buckets helps a lot! the leafblower is a good idea but i have never had any problem with using a clean absorber to dry any car without swirling it.

Scott you learned the hard way huh. Use very little of this paste wax and i always get my applicator wet before applying.
