    I know. I really want one. Maybe I'll pick up one next month, but for now, you have been my inspiration!

    This is what I came up with...
    I took the head unit off a bottle of a grass fertilizer, cleaned it real good, and screwed it on a spray bottle I have; the results, my own homemade foam gun
    This is what it looks like: (just washed the car with the soap, rinsed, and dried -nothing more-)
    Notice it has its own shut-off dial valve (in blue)





    The results were ok. I was pleased that it worked like I thought it would. However, the suds action could've been better. I have poured about an ounce of a diluted 50/50 Duragloss Car Shampoo with water to experiment, probably an inch of the total diluted solution into the bottle
    Next time, I'm going to use the carwash soap in its concentrated form, now that I know it will work
    Here's some pics of its work...




    And here are some afters...

    It was an experimental thing. I really didn't want to use my concentrated car wash in case it didn't work
    I'm sure it will sud better if I use concentrated Duragloss instead of diluting it.
    The good thing is that I was able to do the whole car with just an ounce of it, so that was good

    Well I got a couple pics of the foam action of the foammaster but its really hard to tell how much foam is on the car in the photos. The foam is about 13/4 -2 inches thick on the car. Here ya go Goose:




    Works so well. Cuts down on a million trips to the bucket. Now I do half the trips just to rinse my mitt off in between sections of the car.

    O-also I use the car wash really sparingly because its expensive-I believe with more wash in the cup it would blow even thicker foam. LOL it also has an adjustment for amount of foam on the side but I am so pleased I havent experimented with it yet.
