Default Quick car wash tip

Lets see how many perfectionists know about this> when washing your Cruiser, get down on your hands and knees, and look under the frame of the car ( under the front and rear doors) their is actually a finished section about 6" wide that should be cleaned and sealed. This is a unique feature, and you should keep it clean. many people don't look "under" their car when they wash unless your a nut like me.

It's funny you would mention that. Just over the weekend I ran over something that made a terrible noise under my GT. I got down on my hands and knees to look for any damage. Didn't see any damage but I did notice the six inch strip under the doors from front to back tires. I noticed that they were painted electric blue like the rest of the GT. Something made me do it, but I washed and waxed that newly discovered part on Sunday. Made me feel good.

I'm really suprised with all the short cuts they do to save $$$, that they finished a part you can't see unless your on the ground. GK

My Elec Blue has more white under there than blue. Well, not actually but it's NO WHERE near the same color as the rest of the car. Is your underhood as shiney as the rest of the exterior? Mine is as DULL as the undercarrage.
