    These are really good for the money..

      ​​The Costco ones are great - they measure approx 41cm x 41cm
      They are "KIRKLAND Brand and come in a pack of 36
      The retail for around $25 - $28 from memory - but just checked and they are not currently listed on the Costco website..

      I did find this listing though

      I have that many of them now, that they have about 5 life cycles, being washed after each cycle and getting progressively dirtier from Starting out as Class Cleaning / Quick Detailer / Polishing etc until they are oil mop up rags...

            PS, the Microfibre rags are pretty bloody good too, perfect size for the smaller jobs in the car and soak up water well and wring out very well...

                    After some advice. Got some pretty bad damage to clear coat on the Corolla. Trying to sell it before GR arrives. Wondering what I can do as a quick fix to make it look better for sale.

                      How much effort do you want to put in Kev?

                      You could feather the edges with wet’n’dry, scuff the roof with same. mask the entire roof between the rails and screen and hatch and then spray with rattle can clear from Supercheap building a few extra coats over the patch.

                      Take you a day and say $100 all in.

                      Wait a week and give it a light cut to knock down imperfections.

                      90% of people wouldn’t notice, and it’s actually a job if done with some care has potential to last a couple years.

                        Otherwise scotch pad to knock the crusty bits and the slimiest greasiest tyre shine on the patch without clear.

                              Cost for getting someone to wrap the roof ?

                                Probably more than painting it
