    Anyone use Car Pro Lift?

    Asked this over on AGO and got crickets....figured I`d try here. Gonna finally get to wash my truck next week.....and was looking for a good pre-wash. I know some people are gonna say that it`s not necessary, or that it`s not that effective, but I plan on doing it anyway. I saw a video for this stuff, and was wondering if anyone here used it, and if so, how did it work for you?

    Re: Anyone use Car Pro Lift?

    I have not used it but have use Bilt hamber Autofoam a really popular alkaline pre foam from the UK.

    Alkaline cleaners (Lift is alkaline) definitely clean better than ph neutral snow foams.

    Will not work as a touchless wash as not much will but will cut through the grime.

    Be careful though alkaline cleaners can remove sealants and waxes or at least damage them.

    I used an alkaline wash (mckee’s coating prep wash) to decon my paint once every 2-3 months with maybe the BH autofoam once a month.

    Would remove toppers as well but bo noticeable affects to the coating.

    Just a couple of last things. They’re are reviews on Lift from detailing world and not much love for it. If you want to give BH AF a try their is a us supplier now just google it. About $40 for a gallon

    Thanks for the input......I watched a video review from Car Craft Auto Detailing....he seemed to like it. Based on that, I bought a small bottle from Car Pro......will report how it works (or doesn`t)

    Re: Anyone use Car Pro Lift?

    So....finally got to use it. I`d have some before/after pics....but it`s cloudy here and the truck is a dark color. I used it at 10:1 in my MTM PF22, and let it dwell for about 3 minutes. It did a decent job, and worked as well as I would have expected. It took a lot of the major crud off, which you could see if you watched the foam run off. For now, it will be my go-to for a pre-wash, until maybe I try some Bilt Hamber Touchless....as soon as its available in the U.S.
