Car Filthy But It's Been Lightly Snowing...

Recommended Posts

I seriously need to wash my car as it's more grey / black rather than frozen white (hehe) at the moment, I've been meaning to do it for a few days, but been busy lately, I've got time to do it today, problem is it snowed a little bit last night...

It's only a fair dusting, about half an inch or so deep, I was thinking of putting some road salt on the pavement in front of my drive if it then freezes

Would you do it?

Sod it I bit the bullet and went for it anyway...

I didn't do the roof so hopefully no frozen water is going to end up in the engine, and I had to use the old fashioned buckets method as the hose was still frozen :lol:

At least you can see the number plates and identify the car so little chance of being pulled over now :p

I did mine on Sunday after a trip from Swindon to Birmingham and back covered my car completely with salt. I could hear the fizz of the bodywork so I gave it a going over, knowing full well it would get crapped up again straightaway. In my opinion though it can't hurt getting it clean regularly in bad weather.

I do mine at work with the industrial steam cleaner/pressure washer & TFR when I do my truck :) carefully mind, that thing will take paint off at 10 paces, I've stripped some sign writing off my truck with it before now!

My son and his mate gave mine a going over last weekend including sealant the full works. Didn't even charge me lol.

This weekend I just snow foamed and a quick wash and looks great again.

Have to give mine a wash.. Not too worried about the general filth, dirt appearance, but it's the salt that's worried me... Might take it too the hot wash place Clive mentioned before..
