    Foam Lance

    right, now its starting to stay good weather for a few days in a row i think its about time i gave my car a good clean.

    Unfortunatly it was attacked by some polish 'car cleaners' in some car park and they've left it pretty damn swirly

    my gear so far is:

    2x clear buckets with GGs
    poor boys SSR 2.5
    Poor boys black hole
    loads of MF cloths
    big drying towel
    some sonus buffing towels
    collinite 476s
    and a megs clay bar with lube stuff

    I was thinking of getting some jet seal and some other polish. The SSR is just for the sheer amount of swirling.


    with the wax, i know its not the best for black cars but i'm looking for longevity more than anything at this stage as i maybe selling it soon :/

    anyways any advice on what else i could add?

    I really want a snow foam lance so whats a good one to go for? and where can i get one from? I've got a karcher presure washer so it needs to fit that.

    I could probably go for a machine aswell as... is it a DAS-6? from cleanyourcar?

    any reccomendations? i dont wanna spend mega bucks, but i want something that'll last a long time and give good results

    thanks for your time

    for a foam lance i would go with
    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin.../prod_371.html
    and also das-6 from the same site
    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/polish...er/cat_71.html

    i went for the das-6 with the menz kit which im happy with altho now im using hexlogic pads which i find so much nicer to use , alot of ppl dont seem to get on with the menz polish and seem to prefer the megs polishes
    if your wanting to use the ssr2.5 u have it might be worth getting a finer finish polish like the megs 80 which is fairly cheap altho iv never used teh ssr range so dont know how well they finish down

    As above for the lance and id go for the valet pro snow foam for it,
    i bought the das-6 sonus kit and its a very good set plus the final finis polish is unreal
    you could add megs tyre gel to your list and id go for the z2pro sealant over the jetseal as my opinion its slightly better plus its cheaper.
    for other polishes try looking into the 3M range.
