Another cool technique that isn't mentioned in the video
Is flooding
When doing your final rinse Don’t blast your vehicle with the water hose. Use Free-flowing water (no nozzle) this will allow the water to sheet off of your vehicle. This method makes drying your vehicle much easier.

Also...Never use the same car wash water that you have used to clean your wheels with on the paint. Brake dust even in water is very abrasive.

In another life I was a daily meals on wheels delivery driver.
We washed our vehicles every day and it took 20 minutes for the complete outside of the van.
A soapy bucket on wheels and a horse-hair automotive brush on a broom stick.

Spray the vehicle with water.
Wash from the top down with soap taking care only to dip the brush shallow.
Rinse with water again.
Squichy the windows.

It still works for me thumbsup
