Hello everyone. My car goes into production today. I have thought long and hard in regard for the past month on how am I going to take care of the paint. I like your thoughts on the no rinse technique and the power wash technique. Are these techniques safe for the protective coatings listed below? is the no rinse technique reallly saving water? I live in southern california and we are in a drought so saving water is important. popular options are: A- xpel wrap the whole car except pano + opti coat pro plus the whole car B - xpel the hood, fender, bumper + opti coat pro plus the whole car C- opti coat pro plus the whole car only 1) With the A option I can take it to the local car wash and not having to worry about scratches since xpel will protect from scratches. But I noticed they still sometime use power wash and therefore can damage the xpel. 2) With option B and C I have to wash it myself because carwash will scratch the paint. power washing is out of the question because power washing will damage xpel. Another way to save water is to do a no rinse wash. Does it really save water? This technique uses alot of microfiber cloths. Don't we need to use water to clean the microfiber cloth? So water is wasted trying to clean the microfiber cloths afterward. So are we saving water? 3) With option C I can save water by using the power wash. I can use the leaf blower to dry the car by blowing it away and thus do not need to use any microfiber cloth and therefore don't need to use extra water to clean the microfiber cloths. This seems to be the easiest. But high risk of paint chipping. Which option are you doing and are you happy with it or wish you have chosen a different option. Your feedback is appreciated as I have to decide soon my OCD is running overtime. Thank You in advance.
