[ I just wash it with the power wash wand, but from a distance of about 8 feet. 4 years and it hasn't deteriorated a bit... QUOTE]
That is fine and you can do that with a regular hose too because ,again our cars are newer . Don't do it too often or over time it will start to sag do to the water weighing it down. If its bad ,you may just want to paint it .
Just to add cause some people don't know but that is a fire retardant . If your motor catches fire , it melts the clips that hold it in place and smothers the engine with hopes that it will at least keep the fire at bay . I've never seen it in action but assume it won't put the fire out .
I power wash it down just about EVERY friday /B]
t ain't going put no fire out. By the time those pins melt the car is fully involved. It's for noise /QUOTE] hey again its what I was taught and by a detail shop that's been around for forty years ,the person who taught me that wasn't a rookie but he could of been wrong . Like I said ,I had my doughts but felt it might take and knock the fire down a bit in order for a person to have time to evacuate the car. I'll have to ask around about that , I could see it being for noise too . Thanks
How hard is it to use the quote function on here??I'm not interested in painting it or taking it off. I just want to clean it up a bit. I'm thinking the apc mix will be a good place to start.
