:confused: Leaf blower? Why not used compressed air? Is it because you're at a carwash and not at home?

^^Hahaha, what...you've never used a leaf blower? Harness the power of that 25cc two stroker with the 3" air nozzle!

I know it's a little bit out of the box, but it works better than compressed air. Plus you can rough dry the entire car off at the same time.

Try it, you'll like it.

Oh, and this is all done at my house, no carwash needed.

Do you still have this beetle by chance Mike? I'm guessing it's long gone but I just purchased this exact same car except the tint.

No, I sold it to my step Dad, so it's still in the family. Fun car!

Ah the struggle of new beetle plastic. Johnsons auto wrecking has a couple of the beetles in the yard.
