    Having a dedicated one would be nice but I use an Echo 755t after cleaning the intake vents. It is a simple joy to use a large backpack blower. More often though I use one of those waffle drying towels.

    I usually just drive it for a few minutes or just don't dry it. Drying a vehicle, even with a microfiber or chamois does a lot of damage to the clearcoat - using a leaf blower in a clean area would probably be ideal.

        You're dragging a mildly-abrasive thing with very little lubrication across the paint. That's how you get swirled clearcoat, then you're going to polish it often because of the swirls, then you'll have no clearcoat left and fading spots of paint.
        Water sitting on the car isn't going to harm it, water spots may 'look ugly' but again why not just air dry it?

          Has never happened. Must be user error. Water spots from hard water deposits on the other-hand will etch into the paint. Blow drying might evaporate the water but mineral deposits will remain on the paint. If you're washing with super soft water then air drying is fine.

            I don't get why you're so ego driven about this. When I was a kid I used a scrub brush to wash and a bath towel to dry, now I've learned techniques to minimize damage to the paint. I'm telling you an obvious truth, it's okay to learn better ways of doing things.

            How do I get rid of swirls?

            You either live with them or use polish to wear the rest of the clearcoat down to where the swirls are.

            Some little homosexual keyed my car down through the base coat. What should I do about it?

            Note: He already got away so beating him to death with a tire iron isn't an option.

            That's rough. You could get one of those touch-up paint pens or brushes along with a clearcoat one then polish clearcoat you brushed on to the rest. If it's deep enough that you see metal it could start rusting, so you'll want to seal it at least.
            You could go to a shop and have them do it, I assume that'd involve sanding and repainting a whole area but idk.

            I parked in a parking lot and left my car unsupervised. I assume it was some dumbass preteen, they carved a straight line down the side all the way through the paint and did a piss poor job of scrawling a crude swastika in the clear coat. I'm not even a queer or a israelite, I think I was just a target of opportunity.

            Is it cheaper to buy a new spoiler or repaint it? My coat is peeling

            IDK. I know what to do to prevent damage but I'm not a body / paint guy. I bought my car with a very faded spoiler and I just said "frick it."

            Swirls are most often caused by automatic car washes, not microfibers and chamois cloths. Maybe your cars have garbage paint and clearcoat and then you might actually be correct, but I've never had the problems you're saying I should have.

            It usually takes years for the damage to build-up and most people don't even care or notice. But, since we are talking about the topic, air drying does damage the paint the least of all options and it's basically free.
            >Swirls are most often caused by automatic car washes, not microfibers and chamois cloths.
            Both. Here's the thing, tiny bits of dirt, rock, leaves, etc build-up on your cloths / mitts and no matter how much you wipe and clean your stuff or use 3 buckets or whatever, you'll always be pressing little chunks of shit into the paint. It's the worst with drying because you don't have a layer of lubrication to work with.

      touchless is by far the best option yes, but this is why you use long fiber microfiber towels to dry the car. you do NOT press and drag the towel on the car. You either lay and tap it slightly or grab the corners and drag it with only its own bodyweight as a support. Dont even bother replying if you dont pre-wash your car before drying or even hand washing.

    Milwaukee cordless. It actually works pretty well and knocks off 80% of the water and makes drying much faster with the microfiber.

          An air filter for a leaf blower. Possibly the one for the 1-cyl engine, but you get the point, air can be and is filtered easily.
