Probably with just some better rubber bits.

I want to try it and see how it works without scratching the paintwork specially on heavier soiled car

If Adams, Meguiars Chemical Guys, and other American companies can supply through distributors then I don't see why he doesn't.
Recently I bought Black Pearl tyre coating through young Tim really screwed on young fellow, if they can do it Larry can too, Until he doesn't I can't justify the price and from what I've seen the products aren't anything to say I must have them.

He just wants to control his inventory from what I read before but dont see how he can't by shipping bulk around the world? oh well up to him I guess.

I dont know how Frothe can't scratch the paintwork, need to try it out or wait for someone like John over at Forensic Detailing lol

On the latest Rag Company podcast they were discussing the P&S Pearl shampoo which can also be foamed and seems to work in a similar way to the Frothe product.

The downside is I cannot find anywhere in the UK which sells it

Looks like it! And Mesto version can be had for £20 on eBay with free washing products included!

Got mine yesterday...

The foamer is a Foam Power 1.5Lx10

https://www.amazon.com/Foam-Power-1-.../dp/B06XC8N4QB
Havent found a UK supplier yet but it is similar to the mesto foamer.

Tried it today.....

Well impressed - you really need to pump the sprayer to get the right foam consistency - too little and it comes out like shaving foam.

Followed Larrys method - used 10 MFs on the body and 2 on wheels. Used very little (3 capfuls) of the product in 20oz of water which didnt seem enough to being with but done ok.

Felt a bit weird to begin with with the amount of foam and the residue after 1st wipe and with the excess just evaporating from panel gaps etc.

Finished off with new hydrate and impressed with the slickness...



Apologies no before shots - only intended on giving it a quick try out and was well impressed with results!
