    I spray down with water, and I use purple power on the wheels, and undercarriage and under the hood, pressure wash those bits clean, I then do the wheels, lug nuts, exhaust tips and hitch receiver, then I degreased the calipers and pressure wash them by putting the car in neutral and rolling it forwards or backwards to get the best angle on calipers.

    At this point, I re-rinse the car, and now have clean soapy water, I will wash the wheels by hand with a fuzzy mitt. Dump the water, wash the bucket out, make new soapy water, and wash from top to bottom with a very soft bristled brush from a local detail supply. Then I rinse. Repeat process with a different fuzzy mitt, and I clean my wipers at this point as well.

    I dry from top to bottom with thick towels. I wipe the door jambs with the first towel since it’s the wettest and use the last towel to dry them.

    I do this quarterly. I don’t do tire dressing.

    My in betweens are garden hose, bucket, and mitt or brush, depending on temperature.

    AMMO NYC take car washing to an almost scientific level. He drops lots of knowledge.

    Couple things i don't do: foam cannon. I find it wasteful of both water and soap. I can't discredit that it does work better than a standard 2-bucket wash, so maybe this is something I'll employ on major detail days, which is about every 3 months or so. But on a weekly basis, IMO it's just wasteful. Water is a luxury item in California these days.

    I also don't clay unless i visually see or can feel any sort of roughness after a dry and wash. Because of where i park, I may likely never have to do this on ny new FiST.

    I also have an entirely separate set of rags and a wash mitt for the wheels. Basically, any towels deemed unfit for the paint, that don't have any hardened fibers or grit embedded into the towel, can now be used on the wheels, tires, fender wells and underside of the sideskirts.

    the only steps you need tow ash your FiST:

    1) Hands off steering wheel
    2) Foot off brake
    3) Transmission in neutral
