I started using the DI Boar’s Hair Detailing Brush a while back, when Detailed Image first started offering it on the website. I was one of the first to try it out and I immediately liked the brush. After a few upgrades, we are currently using the 3rd version of the brush. The photo below shows the newest on the left and oldest on the right.
While it was a great tool, the original brush had some issues with the adhesive that held the bristles inside the handle base. I believe I was one of the first people to have the brush fail during a detail job, as it basically came apart while I was cleaning wheels with it. Granted, I did only use that brush on wheels, mainly tight areas like wheel bolts and brake calipers, so it did go through quite a bit of abuse. However, I felt it still failed a bit too quickly for a brush of this caliber, so when I addressed my concerns, Greg and the DI team worked hard soon after that to upgrade the brush and make sure it would improve.
For the second version of the brush, along with getting the cooler black color :), the adhesive was improved to withstand regular detailing use and stronger cleaning chemicals. While the adhesive was a lot better and the brush much more durable, the issue still remained in the overall design. With that, the Detailed Image team decided for a complete overhaul of the brush in order to make it one of the best boar’s hair brushes out there and they surely succeeded. With a thicker handle, better base design to hold the bristles and a better adhesive, the brush is now just right. It still has the soft but firm bristles and now it’s much more durable and appropriate for use all around the vehicle. Also, there are two size options for the new brush, 1 inch and 1.25 inch.
While I still use it mainly for cleaning around the wheel area, it’s also great for brushing out interior crevices, door jambs and engine bays. Greg Gellas offers a Quick Tip on the DI Boar’s Hair Detailing Brush. I have found that using Greg’s tip for stiffening the bristles works great not only for the lug nut area, but also for getting residue around emblems and crumbs from around interior console areas.
All in all, the DI Boar’s Hair Detailing Brush is one of those must-have tools because it can be used for various tasks and does a great job each and every time. Highly recommended!
