Magic sponge recommendations

Post by scalesg » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:13 pm

Hello all, hope all yout Alpinas are looking lovely!!

Can anyone recommend a good magic sponge? Or are they all much of a muchness?

Fortunately, not for my car!!

I need it to get some blue paint off a black Audi!

And also, is it worth using it on a bit of the wing where it looks as if it has been keyed? Or use something different?

Thank as always.

Go for a clay bar with plenty of lubricant. For the car paint that is.
