    Someone can correct me if im wrong but i was told that the only true way to minimalize swirl marks is to NOT wax the car, only glaze it.[/QUOTE]

    I believe that a glaze fills in swirl marks and you should wax over the glaze.

    As long as the car is clean and your using good cloths and not a cleaner wax it should be fine to wax.Some waxes have the ability to fill slight swirls in also.

    I checked out a waffle weave, GRANTED it was a autozone one, that Mr. Luos says stay clear from, but THAT fucker would not beat a blade, hands down. It was corse as hell, never touch my paint in a million years. I will not judge all waffle weaves on this one because of Mr. Luos expertice (spell?) in the waffle weave but to anyone out there DO NOT BUY THE SHITTY AUTOZONE WAFFLE WEAVE.

    I just wanted to make it clear because some people can think, "why use a electric leaf blower when I already have a handy gas one in the garage."

    I use the good ole air compressor with a trigger nossle for removing all the water out of the tough spots (mirrors, trunk lid, door lettering, marker lights and so on). Then I use a shammy to clean up the rest. However when time is a concern the drive fast as you can thing works fantastic...

    The drive fast as you can is certainly the most fun!

    I always used a water blade on my black camaro and had good luck. Used it to remove most of the water, then finished with a 100% cotton bath towel. Never put any scratches in the paint with that technique.

    For towels, I've heard that Fieldcrest high quality towels were best. Just beware of any stitching in towels as that would cause scratches.

    OK shoot me now but this is my process

    Wash it up, squeeky clean

    Silicone waterblade off large somewhat flat areas--Windows spoiler parts of hood etc
    Biggest thing i have noticed with the blade---make sure it is clean, small particles will stick to the blade and that will cause scratches... thats why everyso often i go rinse it off just to be safe...

    Microfiber towel off the rest

    i usually try to meguires gold wax the thing afterwards too

    First time i did this i had it sitting in the garage afterward and when my dad got home later that night he looked over and noticed right away "wow thats the cleanest i have seen your car in awhile" so it worked for me

    I used the absorber for a while.

    Until I met Goose. And he yelled at me because of it.
    It will swirl your paint. Too smooth, nowhere for the little dust particles to get trapped in.

    Sonus microfiber waffle weave towels are worth EVERY PENNY!
    Also, to avoid swirls, use a sheepskin mitt. It helps because of how thick it is. The crap you are cleaning off your car can get stuck inside most mitts...the wool/sheepskin ones it gets stuck, but it gets stuck in deep.
