Thanks folks for the input and thoughts.

So, should ONR be used with an open cell sponge or closed cell? I have checked the blurb on the PVA sponge I have and it is open cell.

You want the sponge to take up the ONR and dispense it - see how the BRS does it in the various vids. Personally I wouldn't use the PVA sponge listed in the OP as it looks like the smooth surface structure would act more like a water blade rather than a sponge.

Thanks - that looks interesting and at £10 its the right price., I can't justify £30+ for the BRS.

I also just checked out the Garry Dean method which looks a good alternative especially because I have MF towels in abundance

That does look worth a try, since can't find the BWS at the moment.

For those who are going to Waxstock I would guess they will have the BRS for sale and you could talk to the guy who designed it, Yvan Lacroix. Yvan is the global head of training (I think)

Read the "sticky" by Bigpikle.
Just a cheap grouting sponge from B&Q does the job.
It's all about how you use it as the polymers in ONR protect the paint but you have to be brave.
A good spray with ample dwell time followed by a well loaded sponge and absolutely no pressure. Some may think the £31 for the BRS makes it 'magic' but the Yorkie in me draws me to Bigpikles method.
