Purdy Parrot roller covers?

Post by russosborne on January 24th 2012, 8:55 pm

I came across this product in another forum where someone was rolling their Toyota.
I have always read that dense foam was the best to use when rolling paint on a car.
Any thoughts or experiences with these?

The manufacturer says that these provide a "mirror finish".
Thanks,

You need the foam cabinet roller's, these are the long knap roller's, these are made for house painting, the foam roller's leave a finer finish. Very Happy

I agree, and not all foam rollers are the same. I tryed a "cheaper" foam roller and it really sucked. Spend the money on good rollers.

Well, you all agreed with what I have heard all along.
I wonder what results the people got who used these things? The posts were a few years ago.
Thanks,
