Red face Getting The Salt and Sand Out

This is a simple tip for the most effective way of cleaning under your car after its been on the beach. We have all heard of using a sprinkler, or a high pressure water cleaner, and of course just the hose.

After a recent trip up the beach I spent an hour and a half using all 3 of the above. I was pretty confident I had got all the sand out from underneath.
I put the Paj up on ramps and climbed under and there was sand everywhere.🤔😖.

So then I went for a drive down to the local creek, drove the car through a few times at various speeds and even reversed through once. Kept the water to about level with the side steps.

Put it on the ramps at home and the sand was all gone.
Go hard or go home

Plenty of nearby creeks here in Sydney but Iíll be fined if I drive through them, and especially for crashing through the barriers to get to them.
