Tongue Strider's Drought Washing Kit

Righto Guys and Gals,

The first official product release of 3FB (With a real life practical use not just humour. This washing kit 100% complies with the current NSW water restrictions witht he forbidden use of fixed hoses to wash the car.

Beta testing was done last weekend on both the XR6 and the EF and must say i give it my tick of approval. The result quality are the same as washing the cars with a hose.
Key item to note (that arenot shown in the picture to effectively use the bucket water down are is the dual outlet water valve from the tap.

So now there is no excuse for any Fordforums enthusiast to not wash their cars, yes that includes you too 3Toad.

Re: Strider's Drought Washing Kit

I must say I'm a bit sceptical of that photo Strider....

Seems awful light on the normal compliment of Meguires products you're usually sighted with.

Re: Strider's Drought Washing Kit

Thanks Gary, I feel a whole lot better now I know I'm not the only one who does this.

I have something similar. I carry a tool box in the boot at all times with the same gear. I don't carry a bucket but I do keep a bottle of water justin case there is none available where ever I may end up. You never know when you might have to wash something off the car.

Meguiars Quick Detailer is the best product around so always keep that handy as well.

Where's the Quik Wax™? Enjo Glove? Colour coordinated red buckets? We're gonna have to work on a Series II edition of the drought pack mate!

With an Enjo glove you dont need anything else but water. They are fantastic for cleaning cars.

I was laughing thinking he's mixing his own batches of venom touch-up paint using the Tamiya colours on the shelf as a cheap substitute for the PPG paints.
