I have been fighting an epic battle with water spots since I bought my truck in February.

I keep a good layer of Insulator Wax on it but still can't seem to dry it fast enough to prevent water spotting, the truck is just too big.

My weekend wash is a stressful race against the spots, and start to finish it winds up taking about 2.5 hours after wash, dry, quik detailer, clean glass and wheels.

I have been looking at this contraption thinking it might save me some time (and pain)

Has anyone else tried this?

$300 is alot of money to drop on a 'gimmick' that I'm not really convinced will solve my problem.

Try the mr. clean auto dry, I haven't used it in forever (don't know what box it is in now that I've moved) but it worked great....it screws on the end of the hose and has a filter and you just rinse the truck with it after the wash and it dries without spots. Obviously it's not perfect, but leaves the paint about 95% spot free, and helps to keep it from spotting a little bit to like if it rains through the next few days...it was only like $20, and a filter is good for several washes...

I don't know on the above product....looks like you could get the same effect from a leaf blower...

When I detailed cars we used the mr. Clean attachment but not the soap. The filter removes the minerals that cause spotting and softens the water. I would use an air gun attachment to blow the water from door jambs and other body lines then dry.
My cause has a had a few costum motorcycles and he typically dries them with a leaf blower haha

After I wash my truck I use my leaf blower to blow off the excess water beads. Then I put the truck in the garage and use a damp microfibler towel to finsish drying the truck. I try not to wash the truck in the direct sunlight and try to make sure the surface of the truck is not hot before I wash it.. I also have the hose bib I use to wash the truck going through the house water softener to try to get some of the chemicals out of the water.

I think this is basically what the mr clean autodry is is a water softener...

I have a home made attachment for the hose.take an old rubber hose at the female end and cut about 1 ft from the end.attach this piece to the end of your wash hose.turn on the water,run this piece if hose across the body letting the water flow evenly over the paint,dont worry about the hose touching the paint.watch as the water simply runs off leaving few if any water spots.its the hard spray that you dont want.
