Any one else 'crazy'.

Hi

So despite a heavy frost today, I couldn't resist jet washing the cars today around 11 am after an airport run this morning and a weeks heavy grime. The Mrs said I'm nuts and got a few odd looks from a couple of neighbours lol.

Bilt hamber snow foam, bilberry wheel cleaner with warm water, done in a little more than 30 mins. No hand wash, too cold for that, so maybe not that crazy

Cheers
Colin.

I'll be out doing mine tomorrow. I can't recommend these enough for this time of year.

Same, washed mine between hail showers today. Pre wash with Green Star, washed with Gyeon Bathe, coated with WetCoat, tried to stop there but couldn't leave it without dressing the tyres

Yep done mine today. Was so cold but worth it after seeing the results:

Snow foam using Infinity Wax snowfoam
Shampoo using Mynt Automotive Shampoo
Glass sealed using Infinity Wax glass sealant
Finished off using Infinity Wax QDx

Such a beautiful finish.

Kudos to everyone that broke out a bucket today, I reckon it was 1 degree tops at 11am today here. Not that I didn't want to do a hand wash...

I had snow foam chunking into snow like lumps on the Range Rover which hadn't moved this morning, so guessing it was pretty cold!
