    Well it's come to my attention that some of us have different ways to dry our trucks after cleaning them.... Let us discuss our methods here. :biggrin: I use a leaf blower.... Easy to use, less labor, and makes cleaning forged wheels a cinch!

    Rota is not forged Donny :laugh:


    I use California Water Blade to remove most beads, follow by shop air to eliminate dripping, and towel dry with microfiber.

    That cat is racist...it's mocking asian. :argh:

    Compress air is also go to blow out any water in the lug nuts holes to minimize dry time. Same with under mirror, under bed rail caps, tailgate cap & handle, and between upper grill shell & bumper.:top:

    I use a shammy and a quick cruise on the highway. , sometimes i get lazy and use wand wash @ car wash, cause water has softners it that don't leave stains.
    But as soon as I wash my truck it rains within the next 2 days.

    Life in Raincouver.

    I kick back and watch my gf in a bikini wash my truck for me. LOL j/k!

    I don't wash my truck I wait for mother nature to sprinkle some water on the truck. I like her dirty like a work truck! Aren't we in a drought? :laugh:

    Its normal if it rains daily here, so its hard to maintain a spotless truck. I full on detail the truck at least once a week..and i love doing it...oh and i hand dry every time.

    I don't dry... waterspots add character

    If I need to dry in a hurry I just whip out the flamethrower.

    I use my 33gal compressor and a Super Absorber.

    The trick is keeping the whole vehicle wet while washing and then spraying the whole vehicle before I pull it into my garage before I dry it
