Hi Aaron how is it going? Soft water won't hurt it. I think some car wash soap that you can buy may condition the water also. I never have a filthy muddy car but I use a car wash with the ionized or soft water to rinse it off and then shammy it off immidiately. I understand that my silver paint is easier to work with then your black. what is your impression of the car now that you have had it for awhile?
Hope the Huskers can beat Wisconsin........Marcus
