    Like it says, how long does it take you to wash your truck, start to finish, including drying? I'll start, two bucket method, foam gun on a hose (for now), dry with MF towels, hour and a half. Today I put on some CG quick detail, but give or take 1.5 hours.

    About a half an hour for a basic wash. It’s rare nowadays to have time for a full detailing.

    Depends on what level of wash I am doing. Just a basic outside wash - anywhere from 1 - 3 hours. Full details, which I usually try to do twice a year take around 6-8 hours.

    30-45. 10 or so of that is dragging power washer hose and getting a soap bucket. I can’t waste to much time with foam cannons and other gadgetry. After a car wash it normally rains within a day!
