    Black Fire Bug Remover and Ammo FROTHE the bust bug remover combo?

    BLACKFIRE Bug Remover and AMMO FROTHE Your New Secret Weapon Against BUG GUTS and BIRD DROPPINGS -

    In this write up, I am going to be talking to you about bug removal. As Mike Phillips says, "Each one teach one." So please, share this with your friends. One of the biggest rewards to me is knowing a technique / tip I've helped some one discover has helped them preserve and protect the car that they were so passionate about when they first bought their vehicle. Do you remember how you felt? I do. I re live it in my own way each time I see a customer pick up a car, truck, or SUV that I've just meticulously detailed, or my own vehicle that I've just detailed. My goal is to bring back memories and restore the emotion they've once had so they'll take care of it moving forward, after I've restored it, because some one with a passion, much like mine built that vehicle, not knowing who it was for. They made it just for you!

    Here's the write up...

    I noticed my wife's Jeep had begun to collect some insect remains, and bird droppings on not only the front windshield, but front bumper and front of the hood. The usual suspects, excluding the side mirrors.

    Why should you remove bug guts and bird droppings?
    Because bug guts and bird droppings contain acids that could actually ETCH into your paint, causing nasty blemishes in your clear coat. The only way to fix this is through a compounding and polishing process. As my pal Mike P has taught me. Your clear coat is as thin as a post it note on most factory clear coats, when it's gone, it's gone my friends.

    Naturally, since Id just gotten my orders in from Autogeek.net and Ammonyc.com I decided that it was time to HAVE SOME FUN!

    I actually purchased 18 of many Cobra Shine and Buff Waterless Wash towels, BLACKFIRE Bug Remover BF - 175, AMMO FROTHE, and the AMMO Aerator.

    After thinking about it some and watching some YT videos about these products... I figured that Ammo FROTHE in combination with BF Bug Remover and these Cobra S&B WWS towels could be the ULTIMATE in bug removal!

    The BF Bug Remover has the strength to dissolve and remove bug guts and bird droppings, and Ammo FROTHE not only has the ability to clean, but also the ability to provide the proper levels of lubrication in order to avoid installing swirls and scratches on the paint.

    I began by spraying the BF Bug remover on the affected areas, and allowing it to dwell. The dilution ratio I used for this project was 3:1 as recommended on the bottle. This ratio worked well for me this time around.

    Then I hosed it down with Ammo FROTHE. You can see in my video below, or if you are on the AG Forum. Here's the link. Scroll to the bottom to see the video.

It's just my style of writing, so please don't take any offense.

    I had to go over it twice in order to make sure I got everything.

    I wiped as carefully as I could, slowly rolling the towel up and exposing fresh clean area as I wiped utilizing the Kossilla technique.

    Any areas with stubborn bug guts I utilized the Yancy technique as described in this video...

    Theres a pic below you can check out too!

    Hey, If there are any pro detailers out there that would like to give me some feedback, I'm more than open to that. The only way we can get better is to learn.

    Ok, so now I really got fancy. I broke out the 303 Aerospace Protectant featured below and awesome MF applicator pads I purchased from Ammo NYC on the cheap. They are really nice, and I plan to purchase these exclusively. The smaller size feels great in the hand and allows for focus of small sections at a time.

    Speaking of small sections at a time. When I do this again I am going to break it down in to half a bumper at a time. I had a bit of a hard time managing and I think these small sections will be better and easier. If you watch the video, I think you'll agree.

    I went ahead and broke out the Metrovac Air Force Express.
    I blew out the cracks and crevaces before dressing the bumper with 303 Aerospace Protectant.

    I think youll agree the results are rather nice. Also I used the Air Force Express to blow the protectant into hard to get to areas as depicted in my video below. I actually had to turn it down via the adjustable rings on the hose, as the air flow was too powerful for this application.

    As you can see if you study the pics, I like to use the shipping paper for the end of the hose as well as to keep debris out of the filter while in storage. I simply tape it down with some masking or painter's tape.

    One other think I like to do is to keep the Airforce Blaster on the cart, as I feel that if it's just sitting on the ground there is much more of a potential for the unit to become contaminated. Even though it's filtered I want to keep the cleanest air possible flowing in. I will take every precaution I can think of and within my budget to prevent the paint from becoming contaminated with some thing I blow on it.

    Please study my visual material, and if you have any questions or comments, please ask or tell. I will be more than happy to engage with you in a positive way. As a mater of fact it will be my absolute pleasure!

    Re: Black Fire Bug Remover and Ammo FROTHE the bust bug remover combo?

    Thanks for sharing. Frothe is good stuff. I use it in the dead of winter in the garage to wash cars (and my daughter uses it presently to wash her car). We also use it in conjunction with Blackfire rinseless wash. CarPro Bugout is my personal insect remover of choice, but I'm sure BF makes a quality product as well.

    I spray the Frothe on first to let it drag/loosen any dirt etc. then use the rinseless wash two bucket method after it dwells to remove road salt etc.

    Use 914 or any dilutable waterless as a pretreat before i frothe. Light coat let dwell for 5 minutes then go to town with frothe.

    Nice! These waterless washes seem to work pretty well in my opinion. I'm sure glad they have so many different options available!
