work to the bottom overlapping each time you make a pass. Between
1200-2000 PSI is usually adequate, too much pressure can remove
pin striping and decals. However if you own a pressure adjustable
machine you can use a higher pressure in areas such as tires, wheels,
rocker panels, and beds of trucks. Next use your 40° spray tip
to rinse your car in the same manner in which you washed it. For
best results you should always dry your car.
