    So your detailing before you squeegee rather then after.

    So what's the difference. No time saved or am I getting the wrong end of the stick here.

    yeah detailing before squeegee works better for me as I always seem to leave a soap trail when I do it after but your right no time saved at all

    no because it dosent matter if the cloth is a bit wet as it still takes the water from edge you can even use sill cloth as long as its not caked in shite lol

    I've said many times on here that I don't detail at all, except for one job when I have to wash the frames. I wash the frames first then wipe round before squeegeeing as you do, but there is a danger with this, that if it is warm or windy, the glass can dry before you get to it.

    Weren't me unless you misconstrued my comments
    You always end up with water on the frames which if left tends to run back along the rubbers onto the glass so i wipe the frames once soaped up with sill cloth leaving minimal water sitting on the frame/rubber edge
    I don't use excessive water on the frames like in the vid but i always wipe them with sill cloth anyway
