In my experience....... no damage to the paint.


But, unless you really get the nozzle close to the body [and doing so could cause damage] you will not get all the dirt off to make the vehicle look really clean.


I find I still need to use a cleaning brush to get the truck shinning.

Those new style drive through car washes do a great job. My weekends are too valuable to spend all that time hand washing any vehicles.

To knock the pollen off or between washes it'll buy you some time.
Get one of those foam cannons and make you really feel like your doing some good.
