A little ice water takes sap off quite nicely.

And in the process, I'd be tempted to mix a little of it with something.

That's my preference---when i get obsessed with using Q-tips to clean my AC vents, I just step back and have a few cold beers and soon I really don't care anymore.
I mean, god bless 'em, 68 Chevelles are not Bugattis---they can get a little dirty without the world coming to an end.

I couldn't help but thinking when I was there that those nicely and sometimes perfectly restored cars were going to need a detail after being under those trees. Then again, I have a fixation about smooth paint - maybe everyone else doesn't share this. I run my hands on the flat parts of my car often to ensure it is clean. I'm a little OCD, I admit When I was there I was sure to find a parking area away from the trees.
Ice water...I will remember that. Maybe if I wrap ice cubes in a washcloth and give the car a good wipedown?
The Bellevue Mustang show is a good event for this area, which generally has little car show culture aside from the Kirkland Concours in September (highly recommeded). There was a Buick Nationals a few years ago...hopefully that will come back too.

For AC vents & other small orifices, I found the vacuum brush works very quickly. The bristles are long enough and soft enough & the vacuum can suck chrome off the bumper. Using Q Tips frustrates me.

Thanks for the Congrats & now I wish I knew the process of submitting pics on this website.

Okay...first you have to place your pix on a server (you can't upload from your computer at this time) and copy the URL. If you use photobucket, etc, make sure you have granted access to everyone (no passwords). You can also use your Carspace page if you've created one here (www.carspace.com).
Then, you go to the message reply box just like you always do, and click the "IMG" button down below here. After the first click, you paste in the URL of your photo; after the second click, you'll see "link title"---you erase that with backspacing and then add your own title BETWEEN the arrows.
If you want, you can practice with an image of a car you found on Google.
