    thanks, scott.

    The vac does it's job well, just wish I could get a standard width nozzle on the end of it.

    Bag is from HD, perfect for mustard and spray bottles- holds everything I need. Generator is a Kipor knockoff (even stamped Kipor) and is rated for 1600W @ 13A, 54db sound. $350 at a local pawn shop, made by AllPower. Same as this unit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000RUOXYW

    It's a 35 gallon water tank, I average 5-7G per car with my 2HP ExCell and Cat pump, tried to keep everything quiet and in as small a footprint as possible.

    You'd use even less water with ONR...

    Still can't bring myself do use it unless I'm somewhere were runoff/noise is a concern. No hose and all that dust/dirt just makes me think it will NEED the compound afterward, where a regular wash would just benefit from a buff. I know, stop being such a pussy- right? :mamoru:

    Thanks, the lady was happy and so was the family that bought the gift certificate for her.

    IME, washing ONR means less marring than traditional washing.

    marring being the microfine 'sunburst' scratches or something else?

    To me, both types of washing have their place and time.......advantages and disadvantages.

    Even though morgan is using water, a pressure washer will save a ton over a hose.

    That and fine surface scratches, etc. No more towel streaks either. No more trying to dry a black car on a hot day before it starts spotting. Plus, ONR is a lot faster once you get it down, plus no enviromental issues.

    i like traditional washes, but I'm really loving doing an ONR and OCW job in 35 mins. Wipe the ONR on, spray the OCW, and dry it all off!

    I'm kind of reserving ONR for apartments, condos and townhouse developments. But I do see the pros of using it on a dark car when it gets real hot- still barely 70 out here.
