    I've looked through the stickies, and haven't seen anything like what I'm looking for. I would like to get a couple of hose-attached brushes for quick washes in between waxes. My ex-wife's dad had a couple of these (one soft for paint, one a bit stiffer for wheels/tires) and they were outstanding. They were spade-shaped , hand-held, and just basically connected right to the hose (he used a set of quick-disconnects). Any ideas?

    I'd give you help on this but I don't like using any type of brush on the finish of my car. I think Autozone carries them but I'm not positive.

    AutoZone and Pep Boys both carry them, but I'm with Labster. Brushes don't touch my paint. Wheels and fenderwells, fine but brushes scratch paint. Period. :hs:

    What do you use to wash the paint? Sponges/rags/towels? Do you use a pressure washer anytime for a quick clean?

    I use brushes only in the winter when I MUST wash my car due to salt.

    Pressure Washer + Hot soapy water + brush + 10 degree weather = big win.

    Of course you have to take care of the scratches when it gets warmer by giving your baby a full detail. Sucks to be in Chicago :(

    I buy the chenille covered foam pads at Pep Boys. Very nice quality, they are soft and hold up well.

    :werd: Excel Detail rocks...the sheepskin mitt is awesome and very reasonably priced. Their pads & mf are suspiciously close to Sonus in every way but price.

    Lee, I can't believe you said shizzle...of course I keep using bling to describe shine.

    Don't laugh, I used that word in a sentence on my last detail and the guy looked at me like I was a special ed. case or something. It's sad :wtc:
