yep you are right Di but you also need a snow foam gun...

you can get both in this deal... I would have them but I don't have a hose!  :cry:

good question on the mohair... I would hesitate a guess at yes... do you use normal car shampoop on it?

why not do paintwork with snow foam and a specialist soft top cleaner like renovo?

Hi
I would stay away from snow foam on Mohair because most snow foams have an element of TFR (traffic film remover) in them. TFR could over time start to bleach or fade the colour out of your hood.

Don't forget when using snow foam it gives best results if left to dwell on the car for 10-15 minutes.

I would use Snow foam on the lower half and if the hood needs a clean from time to time a regular ph neutral shampoo or branded product made for cleaning the hood.

I think you were completely right - simply saying ask at Elite is better than a wild guess :smiley:
