What are your steps?

What are your steps before you actually wash your car with the 2BM?

Spray front end with Gyeon Bug (leave to dwell), fallout remover (part 1) on all areas which need it (if needed), wheels sprayed with wheel cleaner and washed with brushes and cloths from wheel bucket, then foamed, rinsed with PW

I clean the car every week and BH Autofoam followed by a pressure wash gets 99% of everything off ready for the 2BM. I'll use tar remover as and when I come across the odd spot.

BH Autofoam through a spray bottle followed by PW.

If the car is more dirty and I'm rewaxing I use BH Surfex in a spray bottle before rinsing with a PW.

Odk
Obsession snow foams or even adams shampoo through a lance is enough for me
What I don't get is people who don't use a 2bm or wash their car after snow foam
Bonkers

Depends how dirty it is, most of the time I will use snow foam then rinse but I've started using ODK breakdown which I like a lot also.
