Traffic Film remover and snoew foam

I am looking at giving my car a deep clean as a 'annual going over'.

would you start off with Traffic film Remover and then follow this with Snow Foam (rinsing in between) or not bother!

TFR is a name given to a wide range of differing types of chemicals, which can vary from mild to highly caustic. You need to understand why type of TFR you have and what affect it may have on different areas of bodywork (paint, plastic, glass, metal, rubber etc). Some are perfectly fine (snow foams are considered a type of TFR), others are far too harsh and may cause damage.

IMHO, just use your normal wash procedure and take it from there with regards to prepping all surfaces e.g. tar and iron removers, APC, clay, paint cleaners/polishes etc.
