Using Junkman's tips. After washing, rand a hose over the without a nozzle on it. By doing this, it actually removed a lot of the standing/beaded water. The leaf blower, got rid of a lot of water that gets trapped under the trim, headlight, tail lights etc... Then dried with a couple microfiber towels. This is the first time I dried it without using the "absorber/ chamois. It might be me, but it also looks a bit more shiner.
