    Heh. 2morrow for me before Jack Frost Comes Back.

    I have also purposely left the car out of the garage when it was a torrential downpour. Wanted to try it as a long dirt softening presoak as part of my never-ending quest for touchless. No difference the following morning when I just HPW it when compared to usual straight up pre-rinse

    ​I just did yesterday. And when I was done I used some Hydro2 to add some protection.

    I`ve got a quart of Hydro2Foam that I want to use up... Scared silly on the possibility the sealant portion overspray might lock in snow salt film. Should this be of concern. I`ve never used hydrofoam.

    Otherwise, I`m going to do a traditional wash followed by hydr02

    setec. Do you park inside or does it stay out in the elements. I recall a blurb that H20 does need to be dry elements for proper curing, if I recall reading...

    So no loss, if you missed out on your winter topper.

    Washed the cars last weekend before Texas got the big rains- stayed clean for about a day. Still, got to throw on a coat of Hydro Blue and a topper of spray wax- should be good for a month or two. Stay warm up there guys.
