Some car washes have rough brushes and others are very silky soft. Also rinsing the car before brushing helps minimize scratches and friction.I started to watch it, then I saw you use a brush on your car. You could use a green dish scrub pad and do less damage I'd think.

It isn't necessarily the brush itself, but all the crap that can be embedded IN the brush.Some car washes have rough brushes and others are very silky soft.
The fact that you even made the above statement invalidates the entire video. Yes you rinsed the car first, but what about the brush? Forgetting for the moment the quality of the bristles, how about all the grit and grime from the last 100 users of the brush, or the ground upon which I guarantee said brush spent time sitting?Some car washes have rough brushes and others are very silky soft.

Do not worry, I take care of my baby.
Sorry bro but this is how NOT to wash any car... especially your 'baby' that happens to be the hardest color ever to keep swirl free. I'd just take the video down if I were you, then youtube 'Junkman2000' and watch every single video he has related to car washing and detailing. After you've realized you've been doing it wrong allllll your life (like a lot of us have) then you can do a proper version 2 video using proper methods for washing your car. Remember, any form of cleaning your paint will carry the risk of introducing swirls and scratches. You goal as a responsible owner of a black challenger is to limit that risk of introducing swirls the best that you can. No method is 100% guaranteed however you want to limit the risk as much as possible. You my friend without a doubt took the maximum risk and swirled up your entire paint job. Just look at it at an angle in direct sunlight, not in the middle of the night. We are only harsh because someone on here might actually take your advice as actual advice...
Well something good managed to come from this thread. I didn't know about Surf City Garage, now I do. I will be heading over there to get the Rinse Free Wash.
I wash my Challenger at one of those places once a year, after the drive from NY to Carlisle. I would never use the brush. I understand some people have no choice to use them, as they might live in a apartment, or water restrictions. Adams has a nice bucket that has a screw on lid that I fill with water, some soap, and bucket wash it. I just use the wand to rinse before and after.Wow. Did not expect that much negative feed back for using the brush. I'll take down the video and make another one without using the brush.
