getting between the nucks and crannies

so i noticed today while washing my 2nd gen trep that alot of crap makes its way behind the tail light assembly. i noticed this first when i was cleaning out the edges of the trunk that water carries debry though as it drains out the back. so i decided to pull the tailights out and found this. lots of nasty crap that i found in there.



so after using some regular some and carwash while being carefull not to spray water and soap into the exposed wiring harness connector i had it all clean and gunk free.



so the next time you wash your car why not take the taillights out and have a look!!

Well on your way to being a clean freak! Next time take off the A pillar molding and the weather stripping around the doors. You wont believe the dirt under them. Before you put them back on clean them and apply a good coat of Adams VRT. you will love it!

When I did my inner tie rod bushings I cleaned out the area normally obscured by the strut brace and wiper cowl.

Take it a step further and drop the bumper covers. TONS of dust and dirt in there.

That is true lol. You can do a fairly decent job just by spraying behind the bumper from underneath the car at the quarter car wash.
