I'm old fashioned and still use a chamois leather. (sure to be wrong spelling).

I use a chamois leather and a detailing spray which stops it streaking.

I would of hoped that most ZT/75 owners would be a member on there so they would know how to keep the car nice and clean ;)

yes i am using a chamios at the moment but have been informed that it is not the thing to do as if a dirt collected under it that is a recipe for a scratch etc also it tends to make the shine dull on the car :confused:

So may go for the elite care cloth unless someone knows a better cloth which absorbs really good,and drys super fast

these look ok below anyone ever tried them.

Hi James & Rhodiebill i have tried the Chamois but it tends to leave streaks and can also scratch the car should a piece of grit get under the leather, Found some really absorbent cloth recently and will post up after using it a few times it can absorb ten times the ammount of a chamois and still feel quite dry we will see.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt
