The most annoying thing

About washing this car are all the little spots that trap water and slowly drip it out when you're done. It's damn near impossible to suck all the water out from under the spoiler, tail light bezels, and inside the side mirrors. I guess I'm going to have to drag my daughter's blow dryer out to the drive way next time I was this thing, I hate the water streaks!

You should check out the blaster sidekick



If you're ever in the Boulder, CO area swing by our warehouse... you'd be more than welcome to try one out to see if you want to buy. I love mine!

How much air does that move? I mean I know ur products r good but I would hate to buy a pansy air gun for 1/2 the price of a compressor with less options :-)

Its a good tool to have around. It puts out a good amount of air and is good for getting the water out of the taillights, door handles, mirrors, grille. even off the rims. It is also portable, so you can throw it in your trunk and take it with you. I have one and love it.

I use an air compressor and blow the water out from the gaps and from under the shark fin on the roof.

A fair amount... if you have a fresh coat of wax, sheet rinse first, it can be enough to dry the car. Its MORE than enough to push water out of all the cracks and crevices.

Not to mention it heats and filters the air unlike a leaf blower, also takes up far less space in the garage.

Like I said, if you want to try it first feel free to drop by our warehouse... we're in the midst of our move from Boulder, CO to a bigger facility in Louisville, CO so things are a little disorganized at the moment, but we'd be happy to pull one out of the box and let you play with it before buying.

I say take Dylan up on that offer. It's small but blows a very good amount. Well worth the money.
