Congrats on your new car. Another one to the bay area family. I got a California Water Blade from Costco and it does a great job getting the water off.

Looking forward to the replies relative to the interior vinyl. I used to use a 3M Scotchgard gel product that worked really well, but it got dropped last year as part of the backpeddaling 3M did on the Scotchgard line. I have tried a few things since, but they all seem to be ArmourAll-like and I don't particularly care for that type of product.

Any detailers out ther have a stash of the old 3M stuff they could be bribed ou of???

This product is excellent PROVIDED THAT the surface is completely free of sand and rock particles, AND I MEAN COMPLETELY!!!!

Imagine a nice afternoon breeze that picks up some finer sand particles.....all it takes is ONE.....glide the blade across the surface, and whammo!!!!!Nice scratch on the paint surface!!! Happened to me once and that's when I quit using it forever.....

Use at your own risk!!!! My 2 cents

On the interior I do use Armor All no grease, gives less shine for the dash. I think it works great. I do nothing to the leather.

Another Blitz fan!

I have sung its praises in several threads on this forum already, but it never hurts for people to hear it again. Two coats of Blitz on two separate weekends every month-and-a-half or two is awesome!

Sweet looks like I am off to the store

One last question: Do you guys use a electric waxer or do you prefer a hand job?

Keep it clean boys and girls keep it clean
