    The video uses the foam gun in an unconventional way that doesn't exploit the primary advantage of using foam versus a non-foaming auto soap, which is that the foam stays wetter longer, enabling the dirt to be lifted with less force/friction/scratching.

    Here you go guys this is the correct way to use it. Not only does he show the proper way to use the foam gun, he shows the proper way of how to wash the entire vehicle. And the great thing is this is just a "basic wash" imagine his extensive washes.

    Thanks for posting another AMMO product advertisement; however, for a video showing the ad-free, unaffiliated, proper use of the foam gun, search You Tube for Junk Man Foam Gun Part 3.

    Just so that you know, he's great friends with Meguiars and buddies with some high Meguiar's members on here. And so that you aware his motto that he uses is, "use whatever brand you like just use it often"

    I think for average people, that would be using a bit more soap than needed. but for a delicate paintr, more soap/lubrication is good.

    For me, just spraying once over the panel seems to leave enough lubrication.

    And if it seem s to need more soap, can easily spray on more anytime.

    Larry at Ammo is one of the few that says fine scratches at the drying stage.

    Re: Gilmour Foam Gun

    Me using a pressure washer and foam cannon, I believe the Foam master with wash mit technique is a very good way to wash the car in the HOT DESERT HEAT.
    With my Foam cannon, Dwell time varies depending on soap and temperature. It can be annoying to wash a car outside with a time limit because it turns into a race rather than an enjoyment. With the foam master and wash mit technique, the car is kept wet at most times.

    Re: Gilmour Foam Gun

    True, there's more than one good way to use a foam gun. If you're in the desert and drying time is critical, that's a whole different situation than we have here in New England in Winter!!

    I recently picked up a second, portable foam gun that has a hand-operated pump. It's too cold outside here in Winter to connect the hose, but between washings I have developed a useful touchless procedure that I can use in my garage. I use the portable foam gun to dissolve / loosen up the dirtiest areas near the bottom, then rinse it mostly clean with distilled water from a garden sprayer (so it leaves no spots), letting it run off into a wallpaper trough so it doesn't turn to ice on the garage floor. It's a quick process, and I'm pretty happy with the results.

    Re: Gilmour Foam Gun

    I'm going to do a partial take-back on my previous comment... It doesn't get enough of the film off, and spotting is still a problem. Still experimenting. Winter *****!
