Default Anyone have a crystal black silica? and how do you keep it clean?

Just got a new 2013 crystal black silica wrx. Just wondering what everyone uses to keep their paint clean and nice. I work at a mill and have some dust at times but not really. The dealer told me to get my hands on a california duster, not sure where i can find one though. But any product suggestions anyone have?

Congrats on the car. I'd say search through here. There are a ton of these posts. I have personally dealt with Phil at detailers domain for stuff like this. Tell him what you are going for and he can recommend a package. California dusters are ok, but will also help to swirl your paint. I'd avoid it. Weekly washes is the appropriate route

Seems like the two bucket method would be the best option, but what do the grit guards do?

Grit guards sit on the bottom of the buckets. The dirt falls below them, so then when you go to soak your mitt, the dirt doesn't get stuck in the mitt again. I like to rub my mitt against them in the rinse bucket before I go to the wash bucket.
