    Re: Gilmour Foam Gun

    I find it needs the agitation of a mit or something to really come clean.... but thats why I wash in the rain... 3 minutes and done, and almost no spots afterward.

    If I waited for it to rain here my car would only get washed twice a year!!

    Re: Gilmour Foam Gun

    I see that Gilmour has several different models, which did you find works best for you?

    Has anyone seen these for sale at any retail locations or is the Internet Highway about the only way to find one?

    Ive never seen one at a retail location. I believe there are two different models its only the bottle size thats different. I have the quart sized one and I can do one half of the car at a time. The bigger one is the half gallon bottle.

    Well, there are a few different ones. There are 2 different size botles, but also different mixing valves (metal or plastic) and a set ratio, or adjustable ratio.

    I use the brass adustable 1 quart jug.

    ^x2. The brass adjustable one is the one thats on Autogeek and such. I keep it set all the way to the left so I get the most foam. I too have a 1 quart jug. Didnt see the point of spending $10 more for a bigger jug.

    Hi Egleone, I believe that foam is an added agent to soaps, detergents .It is mostly useful to keep dirt floating in water.Please correct me if i am wrong.
    Thanks
