Detail is on a distinguished road

When you travel anywhere after washing your truck and THEN try to chamois or towel it you run the risk of dragging dirt from the drive around on your paint. Also, wash mitts, sponges, rags etc all have pores and nooks and crannies for dirt to settle, all it take is a few good pieces of sand or gravel and your sponge is a piece of sandpaper. light scratches are inevitable if you intend to keep the truck clean. Just plan on a good buff/wax once or twice a year. I use a brush believe it or not....i used to work in a truck wash, thats all we used, when i opened up my detail shop i bought myself some nice soft wash brushes and some grit gaurds for my buckets that allow all of the dirt to fall below where the brush sits. I also keep the brush in water at all times so the dirt always has a chance to run off in between washes and the bristles (more like hairs theyre so fine and soft) never harden up.
