    Washed the car for the 1st time Wednesday night... used the leaf blower to get 90% of the water off and that worked great.

      I use rinseless wash all the time. If the car's not too filthy, it's a quick and easy way to clean it and leave a little bit of added protection. I'm currently using Wolfgang, and am happy with it, but I think the difference between brands are minor.

        Other Tip I forgot to post is to use an air compressor and gun to blow out all the angles and vents (especially in the back) and wheels.
        How do you wash the engine?

            I have been using dust gel or mud. Works great on what you can reach
