This is this first dark colored vehicle I have ever owned. I need to know what you guys are using to wash your Bullitt with. I want to make sure that I do'nt get those spider web scratches.
1.Car wash solution
2.Wax
3.Leather treatment
4.Washing device (sponge,hand mit,etc)
5.Drying device (leather chamois, towels,etc)

Thanks

Meguiar's Gold Class soap is cheap and won't remove wax or polymer. You can get it by the gallon. I use brand new soft sponges and replace them frequently.

I bought a trunk-load of Meguiar's products including their Gold Class liquid wax. I know that Zaino and Klasse have made their followings, but I'm still into carnuba. The shine really is quite good and the protection seems to be there - we'll see how long it lasts.

My favorite problem solver is the Porter Cable random orbit polisher I recently purchased. It has taken all the work out of creating a mirror finish and it makes scratch removal a breeze. Without a doubt, there will be scratches. When it comes to dark finishes, they come with the territory. You're thinking ahead to limit them, that's good. Water spots are a HUGE pain, too. Don't allow them to occur or you'll really have your work cut out for you. Be absolutely certain to wash a COOL car in the SHADE, no matter what time of year, and dry QUICKLY. You'll be much happier.

I'm using a light pass with a California Water Blade and final dry with soft 100% cotton white hand towels made by Royal or Fieldcrest. That blade has cut my dry time down to about 15 minutes from 40. I really don't like drying.

Oh, you can also check out one of the detail bibles:

I'm into the proven aura of tradition, so I use the same stuff I did as a kid...
1. Zip
2. Turtle
3. Lexol cleaner and conditioner
4. sponge
5. leather chamois
It's all inexpensive and works great.

Here is what I use.
-Meguiers gold soap, it lathers well. This will help float dirt off your car.
-the wax I use is Meguiers no.28, it goes on easy and comes off easier leaving a deep shine.
-For the leather I use Lexol like Dennis. Been using for a while and am satisfied with the results.
-For drying I use the absorber.
-I also use an orbital buffer to apply polish to my paint. It makes my life a lot easier but still apply the final wax by hand.
