is it ok to leave the calipers and shocks/coils on the car while washing, and not remove then dry and place back on?

This is insanity! Just the way I like it. For all that work, tools, and time necessary, I’d rather buy four winter tires and rims. Then just focus on the wheel well, brakes, etc.

You just gave me an idea that involves a set of quick jacks (which i don’t have yet), my brake calipers, and an old tooth brush. Quick jacks will also make the rest of my obsessive compulsive detailing life a whole lot easier.

I absolutely love you’re obsession with cleaning. I didn’t know I had one too till I bought my new car. After watching your videos I have gone on amazon. My cart is now filled with over a grand worth of cleaning supplies. It adds up quick.well worth the investment to preserve your much more experience investment. Thanks for flooding YouTube with helpful informative and entertaining videos. Love what you are doing keep it up. And put a gosh darn clear bra on the beautiful work bench already.

Hey Larry! I know it's been over a year since you posted, but I need help with my rims! 2007 Honda Civic Si rims (7"x17") that have never been cleaned inside the back space. Brake dust caked on BADLY! I tried the following, in this order: 1. NextZett ColorTec Wheel Cleaner: really stinks (BAD smelling). 2. Purple Power Cleaning Solution: 4:1 solution 3. Meguiar's Wheel Cleaner: 4:1 solution 4. Brake Parts Cleaner (aerosol) 5. Carburetor Cleaner (aerosol): worked better than brake cleaner, spray on, washed off right away! 6. CarPro TarX Spray Solution: full strength 7. Tuf Shine Tire Brush 8. Wheel Woolies Wheel and Fender Boars Hair Brush 9. Speed Master Wheel Brush 10. Blue Scotch Bright Sponge 11. Scotch Bright Cleaning Pads Dobie 12. Medium Grade Steel Wool: I shouldn't have! 13. Citrus based paint stripper: never use this! Removed (some) clear coat! 14. Chemical Guys Clay Bar (yellow): use Meguair's Wheel Cleaner as a lube; didn't do much at all. 15. Mother's Power Cone with Mother's Billet Polish: no real results, just turned cone black. 16. Meguiar's DA30032 Compound on a 3" Microfiber Cutting disk on a Rupes DA Polisher: turn pad very very black! Washing between each step was with a pressure washer, and a bucket of soapy water with AMMO Brute soap inside. After all of this, there still is a "bit of stuff" left on my rims. It's more like little "dots" of tar or asphalt. Around the edge where the rim meets the tire, it's built up badly, and very hard to get off. A few spots are pitted, and needs the "burr" ground off/down. Face of rims are good, with a few spots pitted. I'd include pictures, but can't do that on YouTube. Are they too far gone? New ones are $114 each on eBay...

This is very insightful. And as you admit, a bit cray cray. What I like about extremists, like a bodybuilder in competition prep or in this case with the highest level of car care, is seeing how things are accomplished at the highest level of commitment. As for the rest of us, it's a "choose your level of commitment" decision about how far we are comfortable going down the rabbit hole, but I have a great deal better knowledge of how to proceed if I want. In my case, I will never be a bodybuilder and I will ever take a q-tip to my brake calipers. However, I will be taking better care of my car than I ever have done before thanks to these videos.
