Glad I curbed mine a year ago!Replacement cost for Austin have gone up. 1-1/2 yrs ago I paid $220 including shipping for one from DAP. Now they're $258 as of a couple weeks ago, not inc shipping.
So I bought a replica for $160 incl shipping. It looks perfect but how well it holds up remains to be seen.
Had some time Tuesday so pulled out some new wash items and prepared the car for Thanksgiving trip. I like these items so thought I would share.
1. Yes I am a wimp and started wearing rubber cloves when washing. Saves my hands and is easier to grip and wash. Just get black and you look tough. Walmart and Auto Autozone carry a couple options. They are also stronger than normal gloves. Also nice on a cold day. I decided to buy after watching Matt on "Obsessed Garage" use them. He has some good info but a little wordy at times.
I also picked up and interesting wash glove. Did not keep packaging but I think it is from Autozone. Sorry no details. I like this a lot for my wheel washing. You can wash better and more direct in all locations. It also helps wash faster. You can use both sides when you reach in.
I also like how I can use other wash tools and not have to remove the glove. Very nice addition.
I also tested this new mitten.
Also very nice feel and makes a lot of foam with Chemical Guys soap.
