    Hey,
    I recently got the car painted and have an interior cover for it(its indoors),but havent been covering it yet.Im randomly doing stuff to it and dont feel comfortable covering it just yet,soon though.
    Whats the best way to get the dirt and dust off of it without scratching it up until I cover it?It gets a whitish gritty dust on it every few days.Prolly coming off of the junky white ceiling tiles(12x12s)I havent gotten around to changing out yet.I have a cheap-azz copy of the calif. duster(OER),but it doesnt work that well.Any ideas?

    cally duster all the way

    love the wooden handle duster. i never wash my 74 (water everywhere!). i had to once because drove home at night and had thousands of bugs smeared on the hood,roof, trunk lid, washed it with mild car soap, shamied it twice and used my leaf blower for drying and getting all the water from seams, door jams fenders, etc. took me 3 hours for everything not counting waxing!!

    California dusters work great!!

    I also use optimal no rinse car wash when the dust gets too bad. I also keep some in a spray bottle as its also a good way to remove hand prints!!!
