Sometimes you need to wash the car in the rain....

Needed to spray down the car and it apparently will never stop raining. So, rather than make the shed a bigger mess I rolled it out in the rain and sprayed it down and foam gunned it. Then sprayed it down again and rolled it back in for a dry and detail.

Fun stuff.

Actually, it helps to take cover off car and let it rain on it after waxing, detailing. No waterspots at all, sets wax. Super helpful with a black vehicle

If your a real lunatic after full moon let the moisture condensate on the vehicle and wipe off.. Good for at least 3 to 7 hp gain.

I have always enjoyed the soft water free rinse of rainfall after a car wash. Then Chamois off to avoid dust spots.
