    That's how I feel, but too cheap to make one

    Haha, just read this. Actually have it with my travel stuff for when I wash my truck other places or when I wash my g/f's car at her house.

    Finally took a little bit and put together a video. Only had a short clip but I think the video is good and shows how well it works.

    Thanks man, definitely puts out some serious foam. I really didn't want to either but just suck it up and do it now. Lol.

    I kept my other foam gun as well in case the power washer didn't start or I was lazy one day lol

    Thanks for posting other options for people man :shake:

    I just like having another entire gun and just making an easy back and forth switch like I have. Mine was much more after you factor in shipping.

    I don't have a seprate gun for the foam canon but I put a quick connect on it and works well. It takes about 30 sec to switch from the fan jets to the foam cannon.

    I had thought about doing that but I enjoy having the smaller gun, if you're trying to save cash that way would definitely be the way to go.

    Foam cannon is still working great. If you have a power washer you should definitely get one. People definitely rubber neck and stare when they drive by and I'm washing with this thing.

    What kind of pressure washer do you use? I read somewhere that if its too powerful of one like a gas one or something that it could damage your paint, no idea if thats true or not

    Don't use it on the highest setting or high pressure nozzle and you'll be fine.
