Hi Marc , thanks for the info, I have just used the 2bucket method , softening the grime with power washer prior to using Maguires gold class shampoo with their fleece wash mitt.
Prior to that used turtle wax which I thought was good but not as good as gold.
Might try the snow foam as well.
Cheers.

Is a foam lance attachment any different from a shampoo one?

Yes. A foaming lance puts much more air in to produce the thick foam.

Damn, I'm not about to start spending a ton on a lance extension.

Sounds good! It's well worth it, just remember you want it as thick as possible so it clings to the car and leave it on for as long as possible.

It's also works well for me in the wheel arches

Hi Marc1, well I did have, but I knew the dark Morello would show dirt but got fed up with silver with last car that Fiesta replaced although my Volvo is silver!!
Had all sorts of colours over the years, yellow, red,white, black,blue, found that silver is the best for not showing dirt as much.,
Anyhow it looks really smart when clayed and polished,
Cheers
