California Water Blade
 
I use a California Water Blade that I use to quickly get the water off my Grand Am GT after I wash it. Would this be ok to use on the Camaro's paint?

I do not like that water blade, it is too unforgiving. Use a good honeycomb microfibre, it is much softer and less risky.

I tried a water blade on my thirdgen and it was more work than what it was worth. If you have a car with no curves it might be easier, like big trucks or something

Never tried it, but VERY skeptical. IOM, too much potential for marring the finish. :thumbdown:

Those things make me nervous. One pebble u miss u have a nasty scratch on your paint. :thumbdown:Honestly just get some good quality drying towels then do a quick detail.

I bought one and tried it on my truck. Still more work that it was worth so now I just use it on the glass door in my shower.

works great have used it on my truck and TA. It does get it all, but get most, then i quick wipe with a shammy and done. Takes about half the time and uses less towels. To avoid pebbles and dirt, just wash the blade in the bucket first.
