Cool Major problem with FK1000.....

Well today i cleaned the car, nothing out of the ordinary there you may think however last week I put 2 layers of FK1000 on and this was my problem.

Today thought I would try just foaming and see how clean it left it, well try I did put I couldn't get the bloody foam to stick I just keep sliding off the coating it left on the car was so slick that it just wouldn't stay on there

So can someone develop a snow foam that works with FK1000 please .....

ps just added another layer and I might even add another tomorrow, so easy on/off and hopefully with enough layers nothing will stick to it.

Nice, just back with a couple of tins from the US, going to have the wheels off tomorrow or Sunday for some FK1000 action

Cheers Neil, you'll love it on wheels. Added 2 layers to those as well last week and pretty much just used the PW and they were clean

I did need to give a very very quick wipe, but I always have to with the diamond cut bits on my wheels for some reason no matter what's on them.

Let's see how long it lasts

If you haven't already tried it you need some FK425 QD as well!

The best QD I've come across

Ive found the same problem with the colli when washing, i have to go round the car very quickly where the shampoo is acually beading rather than sheeting across the car, its not really a pain but i like to rinse to the beaded finish not every step lol

Sorry, but I'm not sure I follow? Thread title is about FK products, not Dodo. I'm not being sarcastic I just don't understand your post Wheelie!

Is Dom developing a QD? If so then I'd suggest FK425 is the one he needs to better with regard to performance. Neil seems to like it as well.

P.S. Sorry to ads2k for going Off Topic!
