    no mate. I would suggest just start of where you left off and do the plastics and windows.

    I assume you waxed as well? in which case the water should bead.

    Thanks

    Get yourself a proper plush car drying towel, no more than a tenner, NEVER drag it across he paintwork, place the towel on the panel and "pat" it dry, this reduces the risk of dragging contaminents across the paintwork.

    This is all a waste of time of course if your washing your car with 1 bucket and a sponge!!!
