    Pretty much what I have been doing for over thirty years assumed everyone knew how to properly wash a car/truck/van/4 wheel drive.
    To think I used to wash my Peterbilt the same way! Now do that on a at least weekly basis and it was BLACK as well!;)

    But most folks don't even care enough to do a full detail 3 times a year or wash once a week!:( Black is sharp.

    I'm going to pickup a grit guard today.

    whoa whoa whoa!

    You're supposed to wash more than once a year? Oh dear.


    With me being quite lazy I use the mr. clean auto dry and rinse the brush off after every section (I miss too much using a mitt or towel).
