Good stuff. Just dont go mental and have it like shaving foam on the car!! As it'll do f**k all in removing dirt. What snow foam u gone for? Valet pro is best for cleaning and autobrite best for showing off foam

it went like this left it for a few mins then blasted it off with the jetwash came up pretty clean and it had removed all the traffic film from the trip up to Liverpool

Only problem I'm getting with the snow foam is that my surface is that smooth and slick finish the foam/shampoo struggles to stay on lol
the passenger door was the part that was cleaned really well last after i clayed it and went over with the mop it even seamed to stick well to that but that car was dirty i but it would be the same if mine was super polished like yours lol :)

i did also try to do it with cold water in the lance but the soap just sank to the bottom and would not separate lol had to shake it up real well and it seamed alot thinner than when using the warm water so warm water from now on

I've already decided how I'm going to kill my time down at yours @evocarlos
how that washing my car? lol
