I have now used the Versa-Angle Body Brush (http://www.meguiars.com/?car-washing-tools/Versa-Angle-Body-Brush) a handful of times in combination with NXT Generation Speed Detailer (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=NXT-Generation%E2%84%A2-Speed-Detailer&sku=G-132) and a Supreme Shine Microfiber (http://www.meguiars.com/?car-wash-towels/Supreme-Shine-Microfiber) for removing light dust/contaminates from my vehicle.

Following the suggestions from other members of MOL I did the following:

1. Go over the entire vehicle with the Versa-Angle Body Brush (http://www.meguiars.com/?car-washing-tools/Versa-Angle-Body-Brush)
2. Using the Supreme Shine Microfiber (http://www.meguiars.com/?car-wash-towels/Supreme-Shine-Microfiber) and some NXT Generation Speed Detailer (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=NXT-Generation%E2%84%A2-Speed-Detailer&sku=G-132) I "quik detailed" my vehicle.

I have never liked using a Quik Detailer alone on my truck for fear of the "light contaminates" adding fine scratches to the black paint. So, IMO this is the only way to "quik detail" a darker colored vehicle. I feel most comfortable using this process as it seem its very gentle on the surface minimizing any fine scratches.


As for the Body Duster.... this is a great product. When I first used it I was getting some shedding of the fibers. I gave it a good shake a couple times and that seemed to cure the problem, there is still the occasional fiber here and there but nothing to worry about. I like holding the duster just over the surface of the paint, letting the fibers hang down on the paint, this seems to be the best/most gentle way to remove the light dust/contaminates.

Using the products listed above is a great way to remove light dust/contaminates and IMO about the most gentle way it can be done.

I totally agree with that I usually cover my car every night unless they are calling for heavy rain in the morning and i have to move my car then (nothing worse then uncovering a car in pouring rain) But anywAy that is how i get the car ok'ed for covering I use the duster and love it much better then my old ccd teh only thing different I use is the last touch foam detailer seems to work a little easier for me.

I've been thinking about getting one of those. I currently use a california dash duster on my truck (full size ram). That handle would surely help me out. Thanks for the post.
