    As Honda owners we are well aware off how easy its to swirl your paint finish , you can take all the precautions in washing of your car but you can't stop painting marring and small holographic swirls left in the drying your car even with a quick deatiler.

    The soft paint is so susceptible to this you have to constantly be careful or just paint correct your car nearly every year to get rid of this. I have used my petrol leaf blower in the past but it takes forever to get it bone dry and achieve a touch less finish.

    I came across this which for the money may be worth every penny, as the air will be warm. what do all of you think ?



    Item Description

    A product like this is a real indulgence when it comes to detailing but we absolutely love it. The airflow and heat produced means it's possible to dry a car without having to rub it with a towel, astage which can often cause light marring to the paintwork. It's also possible to remove water from annoying areas like around badges and lights that often drip down the paintwork even after your best efforts to remove all traces.

    Looks good but for 1 car it's pricey, I have a pro leaf blower that may do the job, I shall give it a go

    The cost per Car/Bike will justify the initial outlay. Looks a handy piece of kit

    Good idea, but cannot use an heat gun at low temperature and full blast to achieve the same result?

    A heat gun also isnt a high air speed tool - but I agree with CJ, its a rather dangerous tool to use on paintwork

    still won't as if you don't concentrate you will burn the paint, you dry the car with flame thrower too but why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut also.
