Talking CALIFORNIA DUSTER

Have any of you guys ever used a California Duster on your Camaro? Just wondering if they could scratch the paint?

YES, I have, as many of us have.....in fact I have had one for nearly 25 years.....the key to not scratching your piant is to use it PROPERLY....and follow the instructions of its storage as well.

The Junkman has a video on the proper use and car of the duster....you could probably find it here somewhere, or over on teh Adams Forum. http://www.adamsforums.com/forums/cmps_index.php


go to this thread.....the Junkmans video is the second post

No damage provided you:
1) Keep your car waxed (2-3 times/year)
2) Keep the duster clean

I have one... I bought it to keep my black Camaro clean during pollen season. But (IMO) it doesn't as good a job as I had expected.

Its a gret duster but it will spread oil and dust if there is slight oil/grease on your surface.

No problems here. I've used them with several cars, including my Camaro. Surprisingly effective and has saved me from washing/re-washing many, many times.
