Thanks! I had to go to car wash yesterday and hose her off as the granite dust at work has been insane the past two days. I rinsed her, then dried her and took her home and re-vaccumed her and wiped down the interior and even added a sticker mod:

try doing your wheels/tires first, that way you can move on to your body and not have to worry about cleaning up water spots. Also, use a leaf blower to dry your truck, it will blow water out of all the crevices and such you will be able to get away with using 1 towel on the body.

put a filter on your garden hose and you'll get rid of the water spots.

for as much of an OCD as you have this should be in your arsenal, lol, They're like $30-$40 for the electric ones, and like $80-$100 for a gas one.

Probably the hardware store.

Looks good. And whoever said you don't get water spots on a white truck isn't looking very good. Although, I don't have to dry my truck twice, lol.

wow, i always thought they were a few hundred bucks or something. I might have to craigslist one! You want to talk OCD, I'm afraid to use any kind of towel, even the softest microfiber you can find, because it might leave fine scratches in the clearcoat
