That's a great idea. I slam the doors when I dry but there's always little buggers dribbling still. lol. Thanks for the paper towel idea man!!

Too bad I sucked up a hefty rock up the blower when it was in suck mode last fall for leaves. lol. I suppose I could use the compressor since my system is filtered.

Thanks for the tips guys.

Yea I have the same problem and it's just as horrible looking on YZ cause it leaves black streaks all the way down. I always use an air compresser like Rafal mentioned to get water out of all the little trouble areas. The streaks always seem to come back though right after it rains.

Default Re: What is up with the streaks?

my problem is that every morning, i wake up and the truck is wet all the water that is on the top of the truck runs down my back window and leaves some nasty streaks ALLL OVER MY WINDOW! (i get on the freeway every morning) i honestly wish there was a way to prevent that but there isnt other than using a a rainex or something to make the water run off the window instead of sticking
