I have often wondered why more members do not participate and post information on the forum, now I am beginning to understand why.

No worries, 'Scooter. No upset here because I fully realize that not everyone can be an "expert" on the nuances and tecniques of proper use of the California Duster!!! - :surprise:

Like my CD, but vacuum it after each use. Have Ceramic PRO paint protection and no issues. Paint Protection really brings out the color regardless of the color. Of course it will not protect from rock chips. Only film protection will do that. Had all "front facing" areas covered with XPEL and it is awesome stuff. Avoided serious damage in September when a 3-pronged object hit the right side A-pillar plastic. Gouged the film in 2 spots but didn't get to the plastic. Would have seriously damaged it without the film. 3rd point of the hit went thru the paint into the metal. Quite a hit! Back to the paint protection, folks that see my redline often remark how "red" and shiny it is. Bill

While we're on the subject of real shiny trucks. Since I bought the TOY and it was neglected before I bought it. I have had a professional detailed. He said he couldn't get all the swirl marks out because of the GM paint and clear coat is harder than most. It shines good but you can still see some swirl marks. Any thoughts on this.

Thanks Dave for your input, but unless that is a magic duster(but then in the movie My Cousin Vinny, the cook had magic grits).that's not going to get the swirls out. Go ahead and prove me wrong. See you

Have you heard of and/or ever tried JaxWax Swirl Remover?

I've seen it demonstrated at a few Car Shows and the results look great, especially on black and other dark colors.

By the way . . . over the years, Professional Detailers and other "vehicle finish experts" have always alerted me of the negatives directly related to the California Duster.

Yup - happened to me also a couple years ago. I had just done a complete spring polish job with multi layers of Zaino, and the truck glowed under LED lights.

The following weekend, we were forced to navigate a short stretch of dusty gravel to get to the show area. I gently used the California duster to get rid of some dust on the truck. When I got back home that night and rechecked the truck under those same powerful LED lights, and the scratches were back.

I parked the Duster, and in fact have a new one still in its plastic wrap that I will probably give away, or use on the crewcab.

The new process is to live with the dust at the show, and power wash the dust off when | get home. I still use an Absorber chamois to dry the truck, and haven't found a problem with so far, but I'm considering getting a high powered leaf blower to handle most of the drying.

So.............NO!!!! a California Duster is as useful for removing swirl marks as 600 grit sandpaper.

Well I see that the same "Noise makers" have done it again, driven another member off! Remember it's said an empty barrel makes the most noise.

Back in the 60's

Back in the 60s ( I think ) GM offered a "Porcelain Glaze" application over the OEM paint. I never actually saw a car before and after this process was done but I do remember it being available back then. As for the "Duster" I have uses it for "LIGHT DUTY" dust removal, NOT post driving dust removal BUT now use my disposable "swifter" duster for light duty dust removal. Just my $0.02

"Long may we ALL SHINE DUST FREE":grin2:

I have used a duster on my cars for years I wash the dusters on a regular basis and they work much better after you get all the wax out of them. The one I use on the SSR is a micro fiber type that has no wax from the start and is white so you can see when it gets dirty.(I bought it from Jax Wax)
