Howdy, decided to give the car a good clean yesterday... but started a little late, washed, polished, glazed, applied wax, then the sun set lol.

 

Thought I'd leave it till the morning to buff as wasn't confident I'd remove it correctly in the low light (and my hands/wrists were dying by this point), temperature dropped a bit through the night now my car is absolutely coated in moisture... any bright ideas?

 

Doesn't seem like the sun is coming out today so seems unlikely it'll dry

If the car has not had any dirt/dust on it, use some wash and wax anyhwhere (megs) or some quick detailer with a think microfiber to dry it , the QD slightly lifts dust off the paint so you reduce the chance of swirling Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Ok, I don't have any QD but I have got some clay bar lube, isn't that essentially the same thing? Defo no dirt of note as there was no wind last night
