Smokindiesel fine work excellent results. Do you use a foam gun connected to a water hose or a pressure washer? What brand of wash are you using?

Thank You. I use a foamgun attached to a hose. The pressure washer gun is called a foam cannon, but makes it too much like shaving cream for me. This wash I used DP Xtreme Foam. I use DP, Pinnacle, & Wolfgang the most


another fine job mike cant wait till i get home...

Thanks Adam. Just let me know and I will get on your truck :thumbsup
