    Shane......... Download the TapTalk app on your phone.

    Adding pics that are larger in size is as easy as it gets.

    Also, I agree with all of the other guys on the PFM towel. The Guzzlers are just too much work (touching) IMO.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    With the PFM it's one swipe and the water is absorbed. I've never had a drying towel work so well
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    I have the XL, the Large, and about 6 of the 16x16 PFM towels.

    I still smile every time I use them, then shake my head at why I didn't buy them sooner.

    I've got a large PFM and a pair of 16x16's waiting for their first use. Just waiting on the weather...

    Re: Drying Towel Scratches

    Some of it comes down to not just the drying towel you use but also how you use it. I think if you use the "Matador method" with a clean, quality MF drying towel you will be less likely to instill any FOD to your paint, and if somehow you still do, it will be less than if you had rubbed with a towel in a circular and/or back-n-forth motion.

    What in GOD's name is FOD?

    FOD = Foreign Object Debris. At least in the Aerospace industry that's what it is.

    PFM's are one of the few detailing products I haven't gotten "bored" of and wanted to try something else. They're really good enough.

    Side note for the OP (or anyone else), don't try to wring 'em out. If you buy the smaller ones or have a huge vehicle just grab a few extra.
