OK, I know you're thinking what idiot dosn't know how to do this simple task! So it not that simple. My well water is very hard! Kinda like the old flinstoneish commercial of rocks pouring out of the sink. So that makes washing at home impossible. Did it once, never gonna do it again!
So I normaly go thru a drive thru wash with the brushes and stuff, but there's always spots missed. and I think I want to give her a good ol' carnuba coat. But obviously want a clean surface first.
Should I try a 3 step system like Meguiers(?) any other thoughts, tips, ideas?
Thx!

Thanks for all the input. I need to find this quick & easy stuff to try out!

I have tried the Mr Clean auto wash thingy, didn't help. But that was with straight hard water, I now have soft water access out side :yahoo: but haven't tried soft water with the auto wash, too cheap to buy more filters.

I also tried brushless car washes, but I guess my dirst is to caked on, it comes out a wet dirty suv :( I suppose those are good if you only get dusty, buy in the country I get dusty in 2 seconds, I also get muddy, bird crappy, sometime tree sap (not to often any more as I now have a garage :yahoo: ) and road grimey.

so for clay - polish - protect, I remember once having an all liquid 3 step system from Meguiars, don't recall exactly what it was, but would that be what to use, or is clay something different?

Thanks again for the help!
