Default Washed the Big Rig!

What a gritty hog my T/C was and the Toad too. I must have run thru a rock pile..... But he's clean now, bought me a polishing ball to work on the wheels next Don.

What kind of mud/rock/trash flap do you guys use? I have see the brush looking one and then the rubber mud flap that goes all the way across too.
Which works the best???


Thanks

Sam

nice work Sam! Ours is pretty clean (washed it after we got back from Virginia & before we went to Circuit of The Americas last week).

we hit a little drizzel on the way to CoTA but i think we'll be fine / clean enough to head to florida the week after next.

BTW we don't run any mud flap(s)

Ours has one big rubber flap that stretches all the way across the rear end. Unfortunately, we don't tow anything, so I don't know how effective it is. I do know that the previous owner kept a 31' stacker on the hitch. It was on there for the first test drive. There wasn't a scratch or ding on the stacker.

I am trying to resist the urge to polish the wheels and the fuel tanks. Stop posting those shiny wheel photos!

I here ya Petrel, I got mothers polish and the red ball that fits on the drill, and it was easy, very easy. I was surprised and glad it was that easy. Thanks for the input!
