          Just saw this at bunnimgs which is a bit cheaper. It is twist on twist off. Goes on the end of the hose

            They are not much good. I tried using one and it just wasn't up to the task.
            Might be ok for the weekend warrior

              We'll I will save money on that one then.
              I was thinking of connecting a 12mm reticulation valve in the end if the hose.
              What do others use at the end of the hose

                  Given the feedback I thought Id throw up a pic of a quick way of applying protectant to a ute tray liner

                  The process was nice and quick after cleaning with a diluted APC mix, then 303 was misted and "painted" on with a brush.

                    Tip for cleaning engine bays - use non scented baby wipes from Aldi to remove dust and grime. When one gets dirty, throw it and grab a fresh one. Handy for tight spots too, as I found the MF cloth a bit too thick for some areas.
                    I'm not a big fan of Gerni-ing under the bonnet after a previous not so fun experience!

                      Put on Klasse AIO and SG on my wheels 3 and a half months ago and have clocked up probably around 4000km and they are still holding up really well. Even after driving in the rain they are covered in a film of dirt but from 2+ meters away still look great. Cleaning has been really easy a combo of snow foam and rinse when short on time and snow foam, car wash and rinse. Can see it easily holding up another month. Will defiantly be putting another coat on!

                          Fleet Clean Setup

                          Made this video a few weeks ago. Gives a bit of a run down on what I use to get the job done. I've been trying out several different things over the past few months to see if there's anything I can do to get a job done faster. This system works well. The next video will then show all the gear in action.
                          Will hopefully get better at speaking to camera, might actually think about what I'm going to say before shooting.

                            Tiger Special - Maintenance Car Cleaning

                            Following on from the last video showing all the gear, this one shows it all in action. It is however a fairly long, mostly boring video as with no one else there the camera is stationary for most of it. I did however want to show an unedited video of the whole process of cleaning a car inside and outside to give people an idea of how long each step can take.
                            As I do mention in the clip this process works for these vehicles in this environment. I don't do most vehicles this way as most other vehicles I do are dirtier and are done outside.
                            I just wanted to share a bit of what I do and hopefully it helps others by giving a visual of what goes on, rather than just trying to explain it in words.
                            The clip runs for 1 hour 5 minutes so you may not want to try and watch it on a mobile device.

                            If you do watch the whole thing through let me know if I've forgotten that I was filming and at any point scratch my nuts or something.

                              CarPro HydrO2 efficient use

                              Here's another video I made about 3 weeks after the fleet clean ones, you can just see that I'm at this job with no trailer and running from the back of the wagon.
                              This video show how little CarPro Hydr02 is required to seal a vehicle.

                                I've watched the first 2 videos as I'm starting to do a similar thing for my customers. They are long but informative. I found them very useful. You don't mention what you use for the rinse less wash in the bucket. I know you used IUDJ in a spray bottle, is it the same for the bucket with MF towels? I know you mentioned you use wash n wax before, which do you prefer and why?
