    Re: How often do you quick detail

    If I wanted to remove pollen or dust I would move up to a waterless wash.

    I dont think its sand particles that always leaves swirls, something as fine as dust is probably the cause more often then not.

    Same here, and I hardly ever bother cleaning off bird-bombs/bugs any more, at least not on the vehicles that wear FK1000P.

    Also, FWIW Im gradually using up my various QDs and transitioning to IUDJ instead.

    Im kind of the same way--- I usually end up RW (one bucket method) as I am always worried I am touching the paint too much if wiping down with a QD or WW- plus I guess Im lazy and dont like flipping the towels a lot when I can just do the whole hood with one quartered towel and then glide my PFM drying towel over the hood and clean up the left over residue no problem


    NOW I find myself worried RW might slightly scratch it and am considering going to more of an Accumulator style wash (yet I dont think I could do it Exactly the same way- my water bill is high enough already)

    My wash method *DOES* go through a lot of water, and a lot of shampoo. Definitely not for everybody, maybe not for most Autopians. AFAIK Bill D is the only person here who even approximates it (the currently MIA, and sorely missed, Superbee364 did a variation on it too), and he doesnt let his cars get nearly as dirty as I do.

    (If anybody else here is doing it my way, my apologies for not remembering and please post about it.)

    You would not believe my water bill, simply exorbitant.

    Yep, I proudly wash with my variation of Accumulators method. My 10 Accord has had zero marring since new and I never had to polish it.

    Thats the way!

    I cant even remember the last time I had to do a full-vehicle correction, other than on something new-to-me.

    Glad to see the apstrophe issue isnt just at my end...Heh heh, this is like the old days of the Mark Trail comic strip where hardly anybody used contractions

    Re: How often do you quick detail

    As a drying aid, after washes to clean up any water spots that appear and door jambs is pretty much the extent of my use of Quik Detailer.
