Found these, there's a few different type of brush tip that i can find a use for just from looking at them

The most useful is the one that looks like a "liner brush" it's really good quality and holds its shape ... might have a go at pin-striping the pickup when the truck builds on.

The little metal tipped one is for applying dots apparently ... handy for dashboard detailing

Yup. Got one in Hexham about eight miles away. Just a question if it's big enough to stock them.

Hi Colin,

They look pretty cool, I tried some cheap ones off the e-bay thing but weren't very good, but these ones look tons better...

Just had a look at their website and found these buffer things and wondered if you have tried them out and if so what are they like...: - Nail Buffer Blocks 4 Pack

I got an identical set, but haven't used them yet. For a quid you can't go wrong.

I've been using those nail buffer blocks for ages, they're great for a spot of wet sanding and even the roughest side is gentle on, say a painted bodyshell.

LOL, Bernadette always drags me through the pound shop when I'm in England, I don't mind so much now, and it's handy to have an actual woman with you so she can buy them so you don't get any strange looks!
