Default Finally broke down and..

..bought a California Water Blade, used it tonight on the Camry, and wow, works wonders! Im going to use it tomorrow on the Bonneville at my grandparents..
Also..new news, im putting the Bonneville back on the road Monday, 3 weeks of no use has put me through some SERIOUS Bonneville withdrawls!
And Im going to use it to take my mom to the air port Tuesday morning then pick her up Wednesday night, total miles estimated there is 200 miles, lets hope it makes it!

Well worth it. I have two. Gets almost all the water off. You can finish with a small hand towel.

I got the extra one when Lilpooky started helping with the maintenance/care of Greenzilla. With both of us doing it, we dry the car in under 2 minutes.

I love mine had it about 2 1/2 years. I use it for everything.
Like removing snow in the winter. And it the best in the winter
when you wash your car you only have a few minutes to dry it.
My girl thinks I'm crazy to wash my car in 30* weather.
Got to keep her clean! The blade cost about $16 - $20 here.
