I went to the remodeled Car Wash nearby that opened last week. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/FERG.gif) It is a modern update for my go to location when I want a spray wash.
One of the four new overhead hoses is for the Blow Dry setting. I LOVE IT. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheer.gif) I WANT ONE. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)
Air drying is sooo much better than drying by hand with any chamoil or towel. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I need to buy something for home use. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

What do you all have / love / hate ?
What features should I look for / avoid ?

A lot of people use electric leaf blowers. A battery operated one would make it easy.

The campus where we live has a complete indoor car wash station and I just drive the water off on the backroads.

Wayne Carenie on chasing classic cars is always advertising a blow drying product. But I cannot think of the name of it at the moment.

A leaf blower's air velocity is over 100mph. Add a little desert sand to that John and you've got yourself a deluxe sandblaster. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

There is a setup in Pano I saw for that $$$$$ John.


I've got an electric blower that works great and I'd agree way better than chamois.

I’ve used a leaf blower for 30+ years. Works great on the interior too. Gets into spots that the vacuums would never reach. My kids gave me a cheep plug in one and I’ve duct taped it together over the years but it works
