I'm looking for a Gilmour Foamaster, does anyone know where I could get it locally? Or is my best shot online?

TIA!

you should post this question in the general car care tech section of this forum. i've seen others over there using something similar to this, and the sponsors over there sell them.

it's very effective, especially if your car is really dirty, but time consuming

time consuming...what are the process?
power wash the car first, then foamgun the car, wait and power wash off again, then the paint should be ready for claying right?

i should have said that it's time consuming for me because i park on the street... sorry. i keep forgetting what it's like to have off-street parking argh.

in the demo i watched, it was just like going into a touchless car wash, and the car was not 100% clean afterwards. the person in the demo still went over the car with a sponge and soap before doing a final rinse. i watched this on youtube... i can't remember the OP., but the subject vehicle was a dodge power ram.

ken would be the best to ask about this...
