    Car Wash Mop Base

    Car Wash Mop Base

    You asked for it and we made it the best CAR WASH MOP in the market. Being in the car wash capital of the world we received numerous requests for this item and we made it with Buff and SHINE quality improvements. The pole has a reinforced metal support under the plastic thread to prevent it from breaking as most plastic threaded poles will. The car wash mop head unit is full 9 ½” in diameter to cover more area per pass. We added a soft rubber molding on the outer edge of the mop head to prevent the mop head from cutting though the bonnet and making scuff marks if the user applies to much pressure or accidentally hits the vehicle with the car wash mop head. The car wash mop bonnet is made from our best quality heavy duty wash mitt material along with super strong elastic for extra life. This car wash mop is a great tool for small and large vehicles and also for those hand wash car washes. It saves you time, keeps your hands dry and requires less bending and stooping when compared to traditional hand held wash mitts.

    Automotive Carpet Protection Film, 24″ x 500′

    Another hi quality product from Buff and Shine is our protective automotive carpet film. Tested, tested and tested again to make sure our protective carpet film will perform better than the industry standard carpet film. Our adhesive is stronger and will hold to damp carpet. We only use high quality poly film that resists rips and tears. Check out our easy tear perforations. All protective carpet film is printed “Dealer Must Remove Protective Cover”, perforated every 21″ and available in 3 and 4 mil.

    We did extensive research on this product before offering it to our customers. Carpet film is available in rolls, either 3 mil or 4 mil thickness, 24” wide and perforated every 21”. We offer rolls of 200’ and 500’ lengths. Designed to protect new automobile carpets or freshly shampooed carpets, carpet film is excellent for this task. Ours work particularly well on both dry and damp carpets, the perforations allow for easy tearing as well. As part of the general specifications for carpet film, ours is printed with “dealer must remove” all over the film. Our film is exceptional on freshly shampooed carpets; this is a real test of the film’s ability to hold.

    There is a number of shipping rate tiers (discounts) based on volume for carpet film. This is due to the weight of the product. Please check with customer service for further information.

    7.5" Euro Light Blue Soft Polishing Hex Faced Foam Grip Pad™ with Center Ring Backing

    7.5″ Euro Light Blue Soft Polishing Hex Faced Foam Grip Pad™ with Center Ring Backing

    Finding a simple to use self centering system has been the subject of many ideas and innovations in the reconditioning industry. The results have been scattered, until now. The benefits of finding a solution are clear: instant centering achieves vibration free buffing with less fatigue and a better result.

    Our patent pending “Ring Pad” system does all this and more. Along with the centering benefit we have shaped the front of the pad with a hex design and engineered a flexible backing plate that will accept air, rotary and random orbit buffers; the hex face will help dissipate polish or compounds evenly, minimizing grabbing and reducing heat while the backing plate helps reduce pad stiffness. Each of our colored foam buffs has a measured cell structure that provides a different level of cutting or finishing. Used in conjunction with your favorite buffing medium, this is the ultimate buffing solution.

    Built around the Gear-Driven DA, Long Throw DA and Standard DA polishers
    Not recommended for a High-Speed/Rotary polisher
    Clean with soft nylon brush or compressed air per buffing cycle
    Able to cut, polish and finish on soft paints
    Washable
    Available in 6”, 5”, 3” diameters
    If you like the overall performance and versatility of Buff and Shine’s Uro-Fiber pads (with the “black and white” fibers), but you felt like you needed just a bit more fine-finishing capability, then you will appreciate Uro-Fiber Finisher Pads. Buff and Shine listened to the feedback from end-users of Uro-Fiber pads and engineered a new microfiber pad with a standard pile height and shorter profile that provides great finishing results, especially on softer paints.

    It is still possible to cut and finish with the Uro-Fiber Finisher pads, but most technicians will prefer to have the one-two punch we like to call “The Uro-Fiber Twins”. Start with the versatility of the Uro-Fiber pads for cutting and polishing, then bring the paint to an amazing finish with the Uro-Fiber Finisher.

    Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pads are designed to fully maximize the detailing potential already seen in microfiber pads. With a 25% lower pile than traditional microfiber pads, Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pads also feature a blend of two different microfiber grades into just one pad. These two features, never before seen in a microfiber pad, allow you to cut, polish and finish in just one step!

    While the black and white fibers found in the Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pads lead to an overall attractive appearance, they are for so much more than just looks. With both cutting fibers and polishing fibers blended together into one pad, you are now able to remove light to moderate scratches and swirls, polish to perfection, and buff to a high shine in just one pad! Although, of course, you will need a clean pad for each step.

    6 inch Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber pad can be used with a 5 or 6 inch backing plate.
