New from Mothers is the PowerBall 4paint. Built on technology derived from their PowerBall and PowerBall Mini tools, the new PowerBall 4Paint offers the same ease-of-use and results to help give your vehicle that showroom-quality shine. Whether you are polishing, waxing, or both, hundreds of professional-grade foam fingers on the PowerBall 4Paint provide unmatched coverage and efficiency with the help of your variable-speed drill. Its soft, pliable design makes short work of contoured edges, curves, and other hard-to-reach areas, such as door handles, spoilers, and curved bumpers. Simply attach the PowerBall 4Paint to your drill, position the crown of the ball upwards, and pour a small amount of polish, glaze, wax, or one-step cleaner wax onto the foam. Set your drill speed to "low" and rest the ball on the paint's surface. Using just the weight of the drill, start slowly and the PowerBall 4Paint glides gently and almost effortlessly across the finish. Let the wax product haze, and remove as directed. The end result is more thorough and even coverage in less time and with less effort than applying by hand. The PowerBall 4Paint is washable, reusable, and reversible.
