Got a chance to use my new Tornador black Z-020 on the headliner of the truck this afternoon.
It was dirty, built up "gunk" on it
I just brushed off the lab hair that I could get off quick ( have not had time to test the fine pumice stone on the Ford headliner ) and went at it.
Used PB APC 15:1 ratio in the Z-020 and worked it just like the Youtube videos show.Before After

I did part of the C pillar cover back there, I was running out of time and had to get on with it.
Last week I did a bit of testing on the running board and wheel / tire. It works for that, but the time involved with cleaning those areas via the Z-020 vs just using APC with a foaming head sprayer and gone brush, it is not worth it.
Next I am going to try the engine compartment with it, obviously not around the PCM connectors and the aux fuse panel ( '06 tiny little aux panel, no BJB ) and other connectors, but around the supports for the intake and the brake / PS fluid res it should work great.
Might have cost 200.00 for it, but I can see it saving me a bunch of time on things like headliners, plastic trim and the engine compartment.
I posted the specs in the other thread ( about the vac one, which I need to change the air quick disconnect ) but it ran fine off my antique PC dual tank 3 HP 4 Gal 135 PSI, that is 5.3 SCFM @ 90 PSI. I ran the regulator on the line at ~ 75 PSI, and for most of the cleaning I had the inline at ~ 50%.
The compressor cycled quite a bit, but I am used to it for air tools ( it is more of an oversize trim nailer compressor, not a real "shop" compressor ).
Once I get by the Ace to get the adapters for the Z-017 that will be next review.
