Anyone use the Chemical Guys foam sprayer stuff?

Recommended Posts

Is it worth it? Any other brands to look at?

We recently discussed washing bikes in great detail. Very informative thread.

Chemical Guys is an above average product that can be found in mass retail. I've had great luck with it

I just started seeing it at Walmart which is a big win for those guys I imagine.

I started buying their stuff when I got this bike in 2013 because it's a true matte finish so I had to get special products for it. Found them online and never looked back lol.

I do have a soft spot for the meguiar's tire shine stuff that looks and smells like grape jelly, though.

I briefly went down the detailing rabbit hole and while chemical guys is looked down upon by pros because of now being in walmart and auto parts stores it's always provided excellent results for the weekend warrior

I bought one, haven't had a chance to use it yet.  Build quality initially seems good enough.  Will have to let you know once it's hooked to a hose and see how it works.

Funny how "making it" makes you suddenly lesser quality to snobs 😂

I saw some containers of paste wax that cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a palm full... I don't need that kinda shit to make my vehicles look nice 😂

I watched a video of a detailer used the new turtle wax vs all his high dollar stuff and the turtle wax lasted longer even after he used harsh wheel cleaner to try to get it off the hood lol. all the other stuff came off immediately.  basically, he couldn't strip the turtle wax off at all. lol

Yup it's great used it on Candy and it held up great this weekend with 1800 miles and a bit of rain. Everything easily washed off with a hose at the hotel. Fyi I did claybar it before application

Do drivers other than forum members notice the red color more?
