I use mine for the wheels and the wheel wells, or after heavy rains, in winter for the salt.

Got that right LOL

I blew off the SE emblem on my car from that... Super glue to the rescue.

1800-1850psi is all you need. The electric cheapie from harbor freight works well. Also use a foam cannon. Makes a huge difference in removing the dirt before washing with a soft mitt.

I use a 1,600psi Ryobi and most typically a 20 degree tip. It's perfect in my experience. It has good cleaning power and you can get up to a couple inches away from the clearcoat without worry of damage. I also use a MTM Hydro foam canon with it which I fill with a dilution of Meguiar's D111.

I've used my Home Depot 3200psi PW for years on vehicles with NO issues whatsoever. You use the 40* fan nozzle and keep the tip far from the surface, its all about common sense...

I first use the soap nozzle and foam up the surface really well and then blast it all off. Works miracles for heavy brake dust on wheels etc.

Just say NO to thin oils and M1!
