    Under the spoiler and the wheels. And yeah, right after I wax/clean the car, take a short drive, car is dusty again. Even when I park the car in the garage after a wax, the car will have dust on it in the morning. I think the new wax attracts dust....

    I talked to a bodyshop guy once who saw me park my freshly detailed TA. His first words, were "That's a dust magnet for sure".

    My least favorite part is under the spoiler, and the rims. I have city water, so I have resigned myself to using quick detailer spray to get rid of the water spots after it's washed and dried.



    But........... when it's clean and shiny, it's just Sex On Wheels......

    So, confirmed, fresh wax = dust magnet. Oh well, like you say, sex on wheels when clean and shiney with chrome wheels! I have a California duster for the dust in the morning problem.

    Hood (favorite part of my car), spoiler, back bumper, front bumper...

    Here's a story for you guys...I washed, clay barred, polished and put three coats of wax on Nymphadora on Saturday. I then refused to drive it Sunday (I actually sat outside and admired the reflection of everything off the car. Come today, I head to work and I'm enjoying all of the looks I'm getting from people and the reflection of the sky off the humps on my hood...when I get to work, I'm not paying attention to the road and before I realize it, some contractors had torn up the road during the day and had put that grey stone/gravel in the road to cover the hole they had made...I ended up driving over 100 feet of it and by the time I had gotten to work, my car was completely grey/brown with dirt

    I now have to wash it tomorrow before I let the world see her

    I chose the front bumper. I can clean that damn thing all day and still dont feel like I got everything off it.
    2nd that the bumper is a PITA to get completly clean. As for buffing/waxing etc. I'd have to go with underneath the spoiler.

    That sucks major monkey balls.

    I've had that happen before as well, so I feel your pain.
