OK, I know I'm gonna get beat down for this but here goes... Anyone use any type of dri wash to "wash" their truck? I'm using the Prolong Waterless Car Wash spray and it seems to be doing a nice job of keeping the truck nice, shiny, and smooth, all without water and leaves no scratches that I can see. Anyway, I know of a few other products that do the same thing and was wondering if anyone has tried these: Dri-wash and Guard, World Klass Waterless Car Wash & Wax, No Wet Waterless Car Wash, and any other I don't know about. Is any one better than the other? Thanks, :D

Thanks for the link crewcab05SE. It's in my favorites list now. I may be checking out some of the other waterless washes they discussed over there. Thanks again :D

Old Fashioned Water and unthought of polish

I prefer the old fashioned wash and dry with chamois method. Something I have tried I learned from a boat dealer the other day. There is a product made by Starbrite. It is a premium marine boat/RV fiberglass polish. It contains no abrasives that can scratch a gelcoat or in this case a clearcoat finish. It also contains Teflon. Anyway, this guy has been using this polish on a Red 98 Eclipse that he showed me and the paint looks and feels like new. He stated he has been using the stuff for over 15 years. It was developed for protecting marine boats from saltwater and brine as well as sun oxidation. If it works under those conditions it would have to work for a clearcoat finish. Anyway, I picked up a bottle at a local marina for about $14. I later found out some Walmarts have it for about $11 a bottle. The directions say it can be used for boats, RV's, and cars. It goeson real smooth and buffs off very easily with clean cloth. i have never felt such a smooth finish on a car. The teflon makes the water slide off like it was duck feathers. It really brings out the deep metallic of My storm grey 2005 NISMO. Two months later it still feels and looks like th day I applied. No more auto waxes for me. I am going back and thnaking guy for turning me on to this. Give it a try. You won't go back to wax.

Thanks jeffdawgfan. I just picked up a bottle of Meguiars NXT Generation Tech Wax and will be trying it to see how it works. If it's not that great then I'll keep that Starbrite in mind if I can find it. I can't believe all I think about most of the day is when I'll be able to clean my truck again and the best way to do it. Thanks again. :D

I remember my Dad used that for years on his boat and it was really good stuff. Thanks for the tip.
