If you have any roof racks/roof rails or other intricate bits around your classic car, it's a good idea to use a small hand held blower with a non scratch rubber tip on it to blow all the water out of the nooks and crannies around the car.
You might need to do this again after you've dried the car, but it's always best to start with that to remove the bulk of that hiding water. Once you've finished with the blower, it's time to dry the paint with The Big Green Sucker and Boss Gloss. The Boss Gloss acts as a drying aid by adding lubrication to the cloth, helping the cloth suck water off the surface more efficiently, leaving a perfect finish and also leaving a really nice shine on the paint. The Boss Gloss won't clog up in the fibres of the cloth like other sealants and detailing sprays can, so it's the only one from our range that we recommend to use with The Big Green Sucker.
Drape The Big Green Sucker over your out stretched arm and spray 6-8 sprays of Boss Gloss into each side of the cloth, then starting at the top of the car and working your way down, begin drying the car. You'll find The Big Green Sucker will dry the whole car without the need to wring the cloth out. Once you've dried the whole car, pop the cloth into the Microfibre bucket, ready to take to the washing machine after you've finished detailing, to wash with our Microfibre Wash, to keep it performing like new.
After drying the paint, you can then dry the door jambs, wheels and tyres. Grab a Dirty Deeds cloth folded into quarters, and spray a few sprays of Boss Gloss into one side of the cloth, leaving the other side to dry the tyres with. Dry the door jambs and the wheels with the side of the Dirty Deeds with the Boss Gloss on it, then flip the cloth over and dry the tyres last with the side that has no Boss Gloss on it.
It's a good idea to take the car for a quick drive around the block to get any hidden water out of nooks and crannies, to help prevent rust forming. This is particularly important to do if the car is going into a shed to be stored for a long period of time. We personally like to put the cars away dirty after a weekend drive and give them a wash before we go for the next drive, so they'll get a good chance to dry out on the run.
Once again, throw your dirty cloth in the Microfibre bucket, ready to wash.
