Re: Body Shield Pro

No not just from water, when you then dry it and push it all into the paint even if your using a plush drying towel.

Re: Body Shield Pro

as Matt says some containments such as metal dust (from brakes/ railway lines) industrial fall out will lightly bond to the car on contact (ether chemically or by penetrating the outer layer of paint slightly)

rinsing alone will not remove them then when you pass your drying towel or shammy over you will drag it over the paint.......


using a decent shampoo will have suitable surfactants to help remove and loosen the substances, have lubricating property to prevent them from doing too much damage once dislodged with a light passing over with a wash mitt or suitable detailing sponge

Too true and yeah, a pressure washer and snow foam is next on my list when I free some funds up, all the dust on the car while it's dry is doing my head in! I did a full detail on my car a few days ago and it was covered in dust inside a 5 mile trip. The OCD is not having fun at the minute!

Don't suppose you know which is the correct fitting for a Nilfisk C110.3 do you? The link you provide has two listed for the Kew Alto fitting, spiggot and bayonet.

Also what foam are you using is it Bilt-Hamber Auto Foam?

Thanks in advance for help.

Personally, I wouldn't touch something like this. Not because of what the products are made with or whatever, just that if you clay, polish and wax properly it will last for at least 2 months even with a crap wax.
Is that the secret to a clean shiny car

Ok what products do I buy then for doing this
