    Since I'm fortunate to be able to drive her only on sunny days, I keep it dusted off and wash after it gets caught in the rain, re-detail as it wears off. But EVERYTIME I drive it, it gets dusted (if clean) when she gets home, body and wheels. I've gone 3 months or so without washing using this routine. The key is dusting.

    When you say dusting do you mean just a quick wipe down with a microfiber? Or do you use an air compressor and no touch it?

    I use a California duster when it's clean.

    I wash my truck at least once every two weeks.
    And only detail the inside whenever I leave the windows down and do donuts or get stuck and floor it in loose dirt

    i carry a camper and tow a boat for 7 to 8 months of the year and i'm out camping/fishing every weekend,so i don't wash it much.when the camper comes off i wash it weekly.i also drive a fleet truck during the week so my personal truck doesn't get too bad.

    I do a full detail 2-4 times a year depending on the paint. That is a compound, polish and paint sealant. I do a clay, glaze wax once a week and a regular wash 1-2 more times a week. I vacuum daily due to mowing and grass being everywhere at the end of the day. I do a full interior detail 1 a week. I am wrapping the truck next week due to going insane from swirl marks and wanting to cut down on hours spent detailing and washing weekly. I still will have 2 other cars to do full details on, but the truck will be matte black and just need to be washed. Fortunately I love washing and detailing and am addicted to Adam's products.

    I live in the high desert in so cal daily driven hour and a half of daily commute live in apartment with car ports she gets washed usually every two weeks full detail with clay sealant wax etc twice a year interior about once sometimes twice a month. It gets driven a lot but I keep all the trash out. I toss out any trash inside when I fill it up twice a week.

    How much is that wrap going to cost you?

    I would love to do mine someday
