And yes i read the sticky posts... My wife's Honda Accord is back at Honda now being repainted because it had a paint defect from the dealer. Now when we get it back, i want to make sure to do everything right. My questions are: 1.What is the preferable car wash detergent to use? I didnt see that listed anywhere yet. 2.After you wash, is it better to dry immediately (i heard that yes it is) or air dry? And what should i use to dry it (besides towels hopefully)? Now do i need to wait any length of time before i wash/wax or do it immediately? And, is it ok to wash it once every week or two and wax every 6 weeks or so? If so, what do i need to make sure to do at every wash/every wax? Think that covers it, sorry for length.
