Washing Your Celica?

Do any of you ever wash the bottom of your car? You know try to get the dirt and grease build up under there.

???? If you wash the bottom of your car then you better get checked for some type of disorder of phobia. I hose the underside to get loose debree and sand off but I don't do anything detailed that takes over 10 seconds with a hose.

A thin layer of grease and dirt protects the bottom against acid rain and little stones that may pop up from under your wheels, so don't do anything to remove that protective layer grin

Put the car on a lift in your garage and use the power washer. thats what i do., though there is a layer of greese for protection, its like spray on bed liner for the bottom of the car (from the dealership)

washing the undercarriage is not something i regularly do. but every once in a while when i do not feel like washing the car myself, i take it to the hand car wash. they happen to have a high pressure undercarriage wash as your car goes through the line.
