Chasing them around like a rabbit. Clean one spot and it floats and lands on another. EEErrrrr!!
Good looking paint job and a good looking car too (old School love it). Vets are static electricity generators. Next time you wash it throw a chain over the rear axle and let it lay on the ground or the concrete. Blow dry it with compressed air or leaf blower and dry it with a chamois as you go. When I used to paint them years ago I always put a chain on them for a ground strap. Really cut down on the dust. On the earlier corvettes the static electricity is so bad that I could tell you story about one catching fire from my helper washing it with 3812 (an old fast dry enamel reducer often used for prep). But thats for another day.
