I second the hose technique. Watch a few videos on how to do it - not wanting to sound silly but I found the videos really helpful and some of the pro's have really clever techniques. One chap I watched had nearly dried the whole car with the hose

Any recommendations on a DI vessel/resin (about to pick up my ceramic coated new black car)?

I saw a video the other day on that - drying with water... brilliant

When I do the first contact wash on the car, I am going to try the open hose technique, followed by the Worx blower and see how that goes.

After washing, you should be able to sheet most of the water off to leave the car all but dry

Op, if you’ve still got the roadster in your avatar, as you’re well aware, but if you’re not. I’d be careful with ‘flooding’ the bonnet to sheet the water off!
