What do you use to keep the paint looking new?

i use to hand wash the car and dry with turtle wax and dry ever 2 or 3 days up to last year.

but now i use the california duster every morning (always garaged) and i wash it ever week or even every other week.

still hand wash and use the turtle wax and dry.

Everyone will hit 180,000 miles in few weeks

Is this an ultimatum? Most of us have a lot of driving to do to catch up. :)

Awesome shot of the odo. I love hearing about high-mi P-cars and I hope that mine gets there one day (but not too soon).
