    What car wash are you using?

    Hi guys- I recently bought a Pinnacle foam gun and it reccomended I use Pinnacle bodyworks shampoo in the gun. The only problem is this stuff is almost 20 bucks for a 16-20 oz bottle. I know there has to be something cheaper but just as good. I like the Pinnacle because it has carnuba oil and things in it that make my black car a deep wet looking black-which I really like. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Isn't that like a $60 foam gun?

    I use Meguiars gold. Does a great job everytime. But then again, my car is white so I hardly see imperfections as far as spotting goes.

    Yea-the gun was right at $60 bucks and well worth it to me. I have a really bad back. It works great and its something I will have for many years. I actually cant even wash my car so I bought the gun for my sister-makes it a lil easier for her.
