    Never used one because I almost always wash with Optimum's No Rinse Wash but a lot of people on Autopia really like using foam guns for washing.

    I don't know of anywhere to get one locally :dunno: I have the simple green version (same thing, just rebadged, even the connectors still say Gilmour). It's an interesting "tool" to use.

    So help me out here. What do you if you have a F-250 that is covered in mud?
    I'm not being a smart ass; just trying to understand no rinse. Do you pre-rinse?

    I'd assume so....just to get the chunks of mud off. ;)

    another question... is this foam washing stuff safe to use on a convertible top?

    i purchased a new car-- it's a convertible M3 and i want to give it its first wash. I did not want to use any abrasives like a brush... so i thought i'd give this foamer a shot.

    i'm just concerned about the top and the soap's effects on it.

    also, making sure the cockpit is sealed properly... is this an issue?

    scott, you got any recommendations?

    thanks in advance.

    Car wash soaps are fine on convertible tops. Since I use a no rinse wash, I vacuum the top and wipe it down with a damn microfiber towel (cotton will leave serious lint...guess how I know?).

    How does this compare to QEW? Can QEW be used as a spay lube and quick detail as well?
