Many air compressors accumulate oil, rusty water, and other junk in their tanks. So beware of FOD (foreign object damage) to your wheels.

Thanks for the information, I did not realize about FOD.
I think that is the first and last time, with the compressor.

I use the 370 method, just have never heard it called by that name before and I was wondering if someone would mention it (a nice fast drive to dry) Fortunatly I live in farm country and can do that, but just as unfortunately It doesn' stay clean long for the same reason.

370? :confused I've heard of 470, as in "470 air conditioning" (4 windows down @ 70 mph) but never 370. What's the reference Craig? :confused

Duh! You've got a "tunnelback". :duh

Ya see Ken, Vettes don't typically have 4 windows. Just two on the sides and the rear hatch. That's the 3 seven 0.

With a vert, it is just 070.

Get it?

I think Craig is referring to the fact that he has a removable rear window Ted - a "tunnelback" to some. ;)

What I was refering to was an earlier post which said 3 miles at 70 mph to dry the car, I do a little better then 70 mph (most times no police) but some times my car gets dirty before I get home. (city slickers will have no idea of the dust and dirt out here) ;LOL
