Default New WRX covered in dust.

I picked up my WRX on Wednesday and took it to the Smokey Mountains this weekend. Well the dust storm from Oklahoma has settled in the area and now the car is covered in a thin layer of dust/sand...

My concern is getting it off without swirling the hell out of the paint. My current idea is to hose it down then air dry three times, then do a standard 2 bucket wash. Any suggestions?

Pressure wash attachment on hose. That should take off 99% of the dust without you ever touching the paint..

As mentioned above I would try to track down a pressure washer and go over it 2-3 times before really touching it with a sponge/wash mit especially if you have heavily soiled paint.


The less you touch the less chance you have of scratching/damaging

I would say just as little as getting a nozzle on the hose and coming at a sweeping angle across the dust and you should be fine. Air drying is a good idea.

Try a soap foam gun. it might help lift the dust off the paint better than just pressure wash
