I always wash the cars myself; usually only dust/occasional rain spots here. Most of the time I do a "spray wash" and "spray wax" with solutions available from www.griotsgarage.com and really like the results. The spray wax is especially good and leaves NO residue of any kind.
Wow, Mark! Thats a sweet looking car but my god it must take some work! Only extra thing I do is keep the engine compartment spotless. Doesnt take much, usually just a rinse every couple months. When I used to do my own wrenchin' (pre cadillac) I wanted a clean deck to work on.
For the outside, Zaino. Got the whole system, and gradually applying layers as the weather cooperates. Who woulda thunk I coulda gotten a wash and another layer added on Jan 1 in Wash DC? This is the best weather we've had all year!
Too many nooks and crannies on cars for any automated wash to get it. With Zaino, I dont even have to spend much time, just a bucket of suds and throw the towel around it. Spray polish in between.
I think a lot of it has to too with how the car wash is maintained. Do they clean/replace their brushes, do the service the filtering systems, etc. If the don't do that you end up with a brush full of grit and water that is full of dirty/particles.
