Hey, do any of you use California Dusters on your '03s? I have one, and I used it once in a while on my GT with no ill effects that I noticed, but somehow the idea of running something across surface dust and small particles on my Cobra's paint... Thanks!

I've never used it on my 03, but you would think that it would tear up a clear coat. Having a Black one, I cant see doing it. I spray it off with water real good then dry.

On a daily basis. Great for in-between-car-wash dustings.

Remember to spread your duster out on newspaper and let dry overnight! It is impregnated with paraffin wax, and needs a good drying to keep it from smearing across your paint.

After it gets good and dirty, it really works good. Keep a thick coat of your favorite polish on it, makes cleaning a breeze.

Correct. The paraffin_needs to be cured before use.

I used to use a California Duster on my 96' black Cobra vert. It worked great as long as I kept a good coat of wax on the car. It's no substitute for a good wash but takes up the slack in between.

Use the Mini Duster on my Interior only, works good. You never need to put on that Amour All or any greasy shit in your interior.

I would not rub anything over my paint without the use of water.

I use it on a daily basis. We have so many oak trees down here that are pollinating the air, it is ridiculous. Every morning I go out to the car and see alayer of green pollen film all over the car.

Can you explain this process in a little more detail as I have had the duster for 3 weeks now and am not aware of the cleaning procedures? Thanks.
