Because you have nothing else to do? I needed to document it for a friend who wanted to see the performance. There are other more scientific videos and not nearly my best work. You should see what I cut out. The outtakes are funny, but I had limited time to do it and get the cars washed.

FWIW I had never heard of a foam cannon before and in fact am still working on my technique.

Good deal on the power washer - if I would have know about it a year ago, I would have bought it instead of the Simpson 3200psi @ 2.5 GPM Honda at Tractor Supply for around 450 with tax. The Simpson works great, but when I left it pressured up while I was doing something else - the hose got a big bubble in it near the nozzle.

I thought it was mandatory to pressure clean a house and seal it before painting in order to do the job right.

Home Depot just raised the price to $289 online. I paid $189 in January.

I came here looking for the dude that put a Ford Powerstroke in a Subaru.
I figured it was gonna be a tough mofo racin' machine.
