Salt removal under your 4wd
The Procedure: Give the under-body a quick hose or pressure spray with water to remove
lose sand, dust and dirt. I have found a garden pressure spray unit with a 16:1 Boat & 4x4 Wash
solution does the trick. Spray liberally all over the chassis, under-body, suspension, brakes, engine bay in
fact wherever you can spray the solution get it in there. It is your choice whether you leave the Boat
& 4x4 Wash on or not so if you choose to wash it off let it stay on for at least a couple of minutes before
you rinse. Choosing to leave it on means after the salt is removed there are three protectants in the
formulation that will give temporary protection to the vehicle. That is it, yes, it is that easy.
Washing the exterior to remove salt
Whether you drive through the salt water or not, having a vehicle parked anywhere near the beach
you are going to cop salt spray. You can use this product on all vehicle exposed to salt.
Use Boat & 4x4 Wash as you would any car wash, mix in a bucket with water and using a
sponge wash the 4x4 in the usual manner. It is an advantage to do this in the shade, however, if you have no
shade remember to rinse of before the product dries and chamois to produce the best results.
To protect your wiper blades and windshield from the salt buildup when on the beach add
some Boat & 4x4 Wash to your windshield washer reservoir prior to a trip, you will find the salt comes
straight off the windscreen and your blades don't suffer.
Pre spraying: Should you want maximum protection you can spray Boat & 4x4 Wash in your
engine bay and under the 4x4 prior to the trip to help protect the surfaces from salt attack. If you are away
for a long period treating the vehicle on a weekly basis breaks the corrosion cycle to minimise the corrosive
salt attack on your surfaces. All this will only take a few minutes.
