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 Buster50 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 Buster50 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 Buster50 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
Buster50 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 Buster50 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.
