Have the truck sitting in the shade before you wash it, if you can keep it out of the sun for an hour or more it will make it easier, keeping the metal cool.

If you can wash it in the shade, even better.

Dry it and you should be able to avoid a majority of the water spots since the paint will be cool enough not to evaporate the water while it is sitting on the paint.


If you run a full waxing "system" over it once you are done washing it, that will help get rid of the water spots as well.

What Boyd said, the key is to keep the paint cool so that it doesn't dry as fast. You have to be quick on the drying process, use a shammy or two towels when drying, one to knock the water off and the other to dry.

ya, washing in the summer sucks, but like they said, if you can get in the shade so the water doesn't dry so fast on the truck.
