    PowerStick

    Anyone used one of these? - http://www.thepolishingcompany.com/acepowerstick.html

    Just going through some unread emails and saw it.. Here is a video I found on YT. Sure looks like a less hassle way of doing the wheels but does it work with caked on grime? Not the cheapest stick with fluffy bits in the world tho..

    Indeed!

    The idea is a sound one, but I think you could come up with something similar for a lot less money - the bog brush gag may actually work if you can find a suitably shaped one & shove a drill bit in the end!

    why would you need to shove a drill bit in the end?

    either buy a soft cleaning brush thats already got a drill attachment on it (easily available) or just make sure your drill has a big enough collar and just clamp the handle of the brush into the chuck... the end of a drill bit is just a cylinder after all...
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    I was thinking of my Power Devil cordless drill... it hasn't got a huge chuck on it (10mm max) and most of the bog brushes I've seen have handles somewhat larger than 10mm diameter

    The soft cleaning brush with drill attachment is a good idea (that's all the Powerstick is really innit)... just covering all the bases
