1.) AWARD goes to Aaron for the hardest I have EVER laughted at something on this board.
2.) Man, All my favorite focus women getting dirty washing cars....man I'm all a quiver
3.) Seriously, I use a very soft brush on most of the car, as it doesn't risk holding onto dirt and scratching ( most of the detail guys I know start with a wash brush), then I have a seperate brush for the wheels, it doesn't even go into the water until the rest of the car is done, then I do the wheels, also, I'm pretty picky about my soap, using meguires gold at the moment, I like it, though some others are also great ( and some suck)
Speed is only a matter of money; how fast do you want to go?
