I'm going to swing by Home Depot this weekend and see if they've got all the parts needed to replicate that filter system from the link above.
Let us know how you make out. I still have time before my Camaro come in - I'd like to practice any solutions on my dark green Tahoe :-)

You need something with a deep knap to pull the dirt away from the paint.a microfiber wash mitt does not have that.A real sheepskin wash mitt will do the trick quite effectively.

It's starting to resemble a scene from "coming to america",but instead of someone pulling rocky marciano out of their arse when talking about boxing.They are pulling microfiber out of their arse when talking about washing a car.

3 buckets with grit guards. One for wheels and rims other for water and last for soap with water. Never ever use the water u use for your rims and tires on your car brake dust will scratch the heck out of your paint. Use 2 wash mits never use the wash mit that u use on on the lower half of your car on the top half of your car again brake dust. Get a foam gun and a good quality fireman hose spray nozzle. Dry using a leaf blower then a good quality microfiber drying towel. Mr clean auto dry for the most part isnt very good imo. Here is a good video on how its done
