Stupid Question About Water (Spraying)
 
So where I park the pine and cedar trees are constantly shedding pollen, pitch, etc. In an effort to keep up with the trees I've been spraying down my rig pretty much once a day. I use a spray nozzle on a garden hose but the pressure is fairly strong, and I hold that nozzle right up to the panels.

MY QUESTION: Will this kind of pressure harm the paint with constant, repeated use? I've got to do something to keep the pitch at bay, but I don't want to start chipping my paint, if there's a risk of that. Or am I just worrying about nothing? Thanks!

You are good no worries...only thing would be if you had a stone chip that is through the paint and you hit it with a pressure washer just at the right angle would it possibly peel the paint. One suggestion, when you wash off the pollen, when you are done, take the hose end off and run it over the paint to try to get the water to sheet off, to reduce spotting.

I just tried the sheeting method yesterday and I am amazed on how little water was left on the vehicle.. It really works. It was my first time using it.

If you have a good layer of protection(wax/sealer), it makes all the difference in the world, I have 22ple on one vehicle, and Gtechniq Exo v2 on another, I could use probably one towel to dry both after sheeting...after I mist and look at all the little pearls of water.
