Do Not do this to your car.

Detailers beware this guy is taking your business away.

For the love of cars do not do this to your vehicle.
And please be sure to see his other videos on YouTube.

Hmmm that spray foam stuff is like the stuff I use for my bathroom...

and I don't feel its exactly a wise idea to just cover your whole dash in that stuff... Especially if it seeps between the gaps and gets onto your electrical components of your vehicle that's bad.... Doesnt take much moisture to fry electronics.

It does clean well, however the product is not designed for dash.

TIRE GLOSS of course!!! Why use anything else? Tire gloss is all you'll ever need, you really should try some. Wear contact lenses and get dry eyes, tire gloss will help those eyes feel brand new!!!

I started using Castrol Super Clean to clean wheels about 3 years ago, haven't looked back. Mist, brush if caked on brake dust is there, and then hit it with industrial pressure washer. 15 minutes to do all 4 wheels
