    I wish I had thought to ask that question.It is a "£$%ing nusiance
    However when Marc gets his car he can let us know as he will no doubt disassemble them and wax then in and out

        I only ever use either

        aquatouch ultra microfibre drying towels.....

        http://www.thepolishingcompany.com/u...crofibred.html

        or

        sonus der wunder ultimate drying towels...

        http://www.cleanandshiny.co.uk/Produ...roductID=10080

        As for water in hard to get places i have a can of compressed air which i blow in crevices which i get from maplins...

        or

        try using r.o water ......

        Before changing to r.o water either by a system setup or aquagleam filter go to your local fish shop and buy a 25 litre drum for about £3 and when your wash is complete pour the water into a watering can and wash off car with it then dry......

        The water will still run out of crevices but will dry leaving NO marks due to its physical properties and zero contaminants.... :wink:

                      I use a free flowing hosepipe to sheet the water off and a Water Magnet, and for under the mirrors etc I just BLOW, its really works, I can usually do one side before I start to feel dizzy and sick , havent passed out yet either

                            Should see my wife and neighbours faces when I do that
                            Only once in a while though, rest of the time I'm not too bothered, just really annoying when your trying to polish/wax and water keeps appearing from nowhere

                            Ps. Your not mad, we both are :P :P
