    You'll spend 30 bucks on product, then two hours washing at the rate of 7:50 an hour.

    Common
    Yeah, for a 25 gallon econo drum. The chamois are reusable, not disposable.

    Fish, streaking is caused by either hot temperatures prematurely drying the product before its washed clean, or youre just not using enough water to rinse. Shade is your friend, and dont be afraid of wasting a little water.

    EDIT: Also, you should tell your wife that its the best damn car wash you have used in years, and she made a great choice in the purchase. Im trying that approach with thee fish sticks for dinner tonight in hopes of some lovin. (She never gets them crispy EVER. How hard is it to crust a damn fish stick)

    Clean your interior windows with windex and wipe with crumpled newspaper.

    Switch Windex to Invisible Glass and I'm with you! Crumpled newspaper or microfiber towels are the way to go.

    Had a guy pull out in front of me in the dump truck a month ago...right after he got done washing and waxing his car.

    He used some quality stuff. The shards of glass from his windshield slid right off of the hood. It was very impressive.

    Ahh, I'd be running the streets naked if we ever got NY downpours around here. I miss those summer drenchers.

    Its been a long time since I had a vehicle worth washing - my wife bought this Blue Coral stuff but it streaks horribly and it basically sucks.

    Is there anything out there you guys normally use that you'd recommend?
    Hitting an auto parts store late and there is a f uckton of products out there.

    Use Meguiars products. They're excellent.

    I swear by Zaino products. For the money, they provide the best shine.

    I'm pretty sure BMWs clean themselves.
