Dan, which wax would you recommend for vision?


All Dodo waxes work well on any colour, regardless of their colour charging. For example, I know Dan has used Purple Haze on his frozen white. If my memory serves me correctly, they just give an ever so slightly different finish, although Dan or greeny will probably know more than I do.

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with a bit of hard candy :D

Should do the trick nicely, and at under 33quid, you can't really go wrong :)

I first started with CGs-Maxi Suds II, but now use Meguiar's Hyper Wash, cos I find it produces more foam.

1:10 with hot water :D

I've been using Megs Hyper Wash in the bucket for nearly 2 years and i like it lots, but not yet tried it in the lance. A few people have recommended it, for the same reasons as yourself, Tyrefryer, and they also said to use hot water to mix the solution for extra suds.

How do you rate the Hyper Wash foam for actually removing dirt?

I was reading some threads on DW last night where people said they were snow foaming and it was turning to ice on the roof lol

I suppose the answer to your question is, it's too cold to snow foam when the lance freezes up - as long as you can get the water and soap to flow you'll be ok, but the effectiveness of the soap will be reduced at lower temps, and it's very hard work washing a car when it's freezing cold lol

HTH :)

I only foam my car for prewash. And in such a way it does its job.

If more cleaning is required, (really dirty one with no wax at all) I just add some APC.

ud only ever get a handless wash in the summer months and doing it every 2/3 days with a foam wash.

winter months you only want to me using it as lifting dirt off the surface ready for your shampoo wash.

if you have really stubborn dirty try using surfex HD amazing product

Been itching to do some car cleaning but the weather has stopped me in my tracks.
So today armed with my G101 i attacked the engine bay for some cleaning.
Here is the result, very happy with it since its the first time ive cleaned it :D

G101 is an APC from Autosmart as Titanium said.
I just sprayed it on to the larger parts and worked in with a detailing brush and wiped off with a microfibre.
For the smaller i sprayed onto the microfibre and rubbed in.
Cotton buds also came in handy :D
