    Thumbs up Flagged tipped brush & Duragloss #253

    Well it hit 60 today. I was about out of the Griots satin shine aerosol dressing. So it was time to try a method that was pointed out to me here on the forum. I grabbed my new flagged tipped brush and #253 tire dressing that has proven to be perfect for me. Love the look and never slung off on to the paint. Sprayed the brush with #253 and applied it around the tire with the brush. Being I have aggressive tires now, other applicators are out of the question. Yes sir. I now love this method now that I have tried it! Works like a charm. Dressed the tire evenly and without drama. This is the method I will be using from now on.

    Brush used...

    Carrand Deluxe Super Soft Car Wash Brush, body brush, auto brush, car wash supplies

    Thanks to Eldorado2k for pointing out this method.

    Flagged tipped brush & Duragloss #253
    It was supposed to rain today, so yesterday I looked at the tires on the truck and I wanted to dress them but I also knew that it might not be worth it because it was supposed to rain today. [It didnít rain]

    So I applied bearly enough dressing but nowhere near as much as I usually spray into the brush. It actually turned out pretty good and because I only applied a minimal amount there was really no need to wait for any excess to soak in. This picture is immediately after I dressed the tire with the brush.



    Iíll probably continue priming the brush before applying, but this method of spraying less into the brush works as well.

    After detailing the wife's Pilot on Friday I was gonna apply a second coat of Silk shine to her tires yesterday but didn't because it was supposed to rain. I guess here in CA it's 50/50. The next time I decide to double coat the dressing it'll dump rain all day for sure.

    The write up on that brush says it's ok for the body? Plastic molding maybe but I'd never used on the paint.

    Re: Flagged tipped brush & Duragloss #253

    just bought that brush myself but haven't used it yet. I was thinking of using it for all the ground trim on my mustang. I actually bought it because of the handle. looks like it would be easy on the wrist. if I go with the wheel suggestion I'll need to dedicate it to the wheels. thanks for the tip.

    Yea Iíd maybe use it on a matte honeycomb grill, but I donít think Iíd use it on paint unless it was wheels.

    Do you have to wash it after every use?
