What are you guys using to get any dust of the car or what do you recommend? I swear the car is dusty as soon as I'm done washing it. Thanks.

Exactly, the rear is the worst.

My technique is to keep the rear well waxed and then after every drive I dust it off with a Turtle Wax car "duster". The bristles are really soft and remove the rear accumulation as long as it is very light. The rear of this car combined with the brake dust makes it hard to keep clean.

I was afraid to use my CA duster because of the crappy gtr paint, but I'll give it a go.

California Car Duster, then Ultima Waterless Wash or Optimum Opti-Clean (UWW is cheaper), then Chemical Guys Hybrid V7.  The whole process takes me about 30 minutes or so.  I do this 1-2 times a week and I only have to wash the car about every 3-4 weeks or so.Posted Image

Try a Kozak waterless wash cloth.  They are amazing.  With any duster After a drive you'll need to follow with a detailer.

Careful using the Kozak on black.  I've used it on a black car before and almost cried when I saw what happened afterwards.  Swirl city.

I'd recommend something like this to many of you, especially those with black finishes: http://www.autogeek....c-detailer.html

The scary thing about a cali style car duster is regardless of how soft or clean they are, the mat will pick up dust from one area of the car and wipe it all over the rest of the finish - and that opens the door to cause swirls. If you can work your magic with a duster without any issues, more power to you and I don't think they're a bad product. However, (this will sound like detailing 101 to most of you) the best thing to do without spending an afternoon on a proper wash is to use a product that suspends the dirt away from the paint before it is wiped away, thus neutralizing it to prevent scratching/swirling. What I like about using anti-static products, especially on the GTR, is that I've found the large front and rear bumpers and the headlights love to generate static even when gently using a microfiber towel. That static is what turns them into a dust magnet in the garage. Two birds, killed with one inexpensive stone that will even prolong the life of your sealant/wax treatments. Just my two cents.

I've used Kozak on my black cars without problem.  The cars have to have a good wax job already and only have dust/road dust without any water.  You have to keep a trifold on the cloth and use a knitted glove on your wiping hand as the oils on your hand will pull the dirt off the cloth and your hand will be black.

Too many best in show trophies here to be wrong!

If you think the gtr's rear collects dust, get a C5.  There would be 1/8" of dust below the tailights after a 60 mile drive.

Try a powerful blower for the accumulated dust. You can get a good one at Sears, etc.

I like EcoTouch Waterless Car Wash more often than any other brands. They are non-toxic and shines great. Go to Autogeek.com and you'll find great info.

I just started with Wolfgang after a lifetime of meguires.  heisted the polish enhancer followed by the 3.0 sealant, followed by fuzion estate and finally a quick spritz of deep crystal spray.  The result is a shine I have not seen with general products.  You can see the diff in dust collection from paint to glass in my experience.

Got a trial of their tire gel and like the other products it seems better too.
