First Time Post. Noticed this whilst browsing on the Repco online site.
Stack it with this deal!
Not sure if it was a stack but rather a "if you are already there buying this then grab some of that"
He's saying, buy some Bowdens then that pressure washer. I would not advise. The connector is horrendous and its really hard to find adapters.
which connector are you referring to?
@Skepfex: The MechPro Pressure Washer.
@Tuttorix: The eclipse foam cannon from repco comes with a bunch of adaptors for all machines including the mechpro… alternatively the mechpro comes with a foam cannon in the box (no idea how good it is though)
I am a total n00b to car care. I've heard good things about Bowden's own. I'd prefer to use fewer products and happy to use a hose or a bucket. Which one is better to get as a first stop: Wax Wash or Auto Body Gel? Or should I get something else?
Wash and Wax are great from Bowden's Own and especially when using the two Bucket method with hose, go for that mate
I use nanolicious wash, afterglow then fully slick.. bit of a process but turns out good.. although I'd say anything Bowden's would be great
If you're using afterglow you don't need to use fully slick.
Both used in different scenarios imo. The Wash Wax is a great quick all in one wash for older cars. I say older cars because it has anti rust additives in it.
I personally use Auto Body Gel because it can be used in the sun without streaks. I wouldn't recommend it on its own though, you'll want to apply a sealant on top unless your car is ceramic coated.
Just remember when washing to always utilise the 2 bucket method wash and you'll be sweet.
I'll get the Wax Wash then. See how I go. Thanks for everyone's responses.
Anyone have experience with the snow gun: https://www.repco.com.au/en/car-care-panel/car-care-accessor...
Yeah I've had one for a number of years now, use it every time I was my car.
It works well nothing to complain about, comes with an adapter for whichever pressure washer you use.
Bunnings have some snow cannons that are cheaper:
Don't bother. Just buy one on Aliexpress for about $20 delivered. They're exactly the same. Had one for years without any issue.
one of the better snow guns purely for the ability to store it with liquid in it and not tip over, that or the Autoglym Polar Blaster Cannon for the same price @ 30% off
I got the Bosch pressure washer! https://www.amazon.com.au/Bosch-06008A7E40-EasyAquatak-High-...
And used it with the green one. Does the job!
The pressure washer goes down to $85 during big discount days.
The green one what sorry? So since this PW has a built in container, that saves us buying one listed above?
Big fan of the big green sucker. I'm in the market for a second one but this is a few bucks more than previous deals on that particular product. Might just bite the bullet.
Agreed! That product is Amazing! But usually retails for $23-25 at super cheap. I would rather wait for it to go down!
Just get the KMart Yellow sucker. Does the same job, fraction of the price.
Finish off with the Detail Towel
These are horrible. They leave lint everywhere.
All Bowdens products are good IMHO and the Big Green sucker is amazing,you can literally wipe down a vehicle in minutes without wringing the cloth out once.
Am I the only one here that read this as 'Broden's Own Car Care' ?
Too bad the "Aussie Bucket" with new product called "Beaut Beads" is only available at Autobarn but not Repco:
Wow looks good. Tempted to get this even though I have other products already.
Used just about all their products, always get good results.
Don't get sucked into buying every single product, there is a cult like mentality people have with Bowden's and it is quite sickening. They have some good stuff, but it's not the best and it's often more expensive than the competition. You also don't need to layer a zillion products over one another as they suggest.
I get perfect results with a snow foam pre-wash, Meguiars Wash n Wax (2 bucket method), Autoglym Polar Seal and every few months I apply Turtle Wax Seal and Shine. From Bowdens I like the Square Bear applicator for interior and the Big Green Sucker for drying, that's about it.
Add to this most products cannot be diluted and only come in small bottles which makes it poorer value compared to more expensive, but higher yield products like Carpro, P&S etc.
Quite sickening indeed, Bowden's Own doesn't even make any pain correction products.
Probably a good thing, I'd leave pain correction to GPs
Can you show us examples of said cult like mentality? They make good products at a reasonable price.
Why polar seal every wash?
Thanks, always wanted a 'Bowden's Own Great Barrier Thingy - BOGBT' that "loves to go down" and a "'wanky' B middle": https://www.repco.com.au/en/car-care-panel/car-care-accessor...
Received my 5L Snow Job today from Super cheap.
Doesn't clean well but foams up great!
I don't think the Snow Job is ever intended to clean. It's meant to dislodge the more stubborn crap on your car before you take a sponge to it.
Yeah but it can't even get rid of calcium deposit from windows.
Having used it for 4 Months, I'd say it's about a 4/10 on cleaning
To get rid of calcium deposits and water spots, try white vinegar. Only $1 from the supermarkets, using kitchen paper towel to work it in and wipe it off. It works like magic.
