Don't know if this has beem mentioned in a previous post but I just tried something new and as usual, think I invented the idea.
For those times when you really get carried away and want to clean all around the steering bits, suspension, control arms etc, a dunny brush works a treat. Get a bucket of hot soapy water (the hotter the better) and hit it with the cheapest dunny brush you can find. I say cheapest because when you are finished it will need to go straight in the bin.

To ensure the undercarrage is in good condition I spray with degreaser , then highpresure clean ( repeat the process if you have a lot od crap under there), then go for a drive to dry. Once dry, mix lanolin and water (about 5 litres) and start spraying away make sure you cover every nut , bolt , nook and cranny (including into the chassis rails). Once the lanolin is dry , everything is super shiny and well protected. I do this once every two months or so.

To save yourself a bit of money on the Lanolin , visit your nearest Formwork supply company , they use this stuff by the bucketload to prevent concrete from sticking to their gear. I buy a 20L drum at a time and it would last for a year or so.....

I have used it on my Patrol that I have onwed for over 8 years now ( and do a lot of beach driving with ) and there is not a spec of rust to be found anywhere. The TJ will get the same love as the Patrol ........

Just what I need! What ratio do you mix the lanolin and water before spraying on?

Just tried Meguiar's PlastX to restore 25+ year old soft top windows back to clear and remove most scratches...micro abrasive liquid. Worked a treat.... price sucks but at just under $20 considering the rest of the world pays $7.99 US! A little goes a long way though and you can use it on other plastics around the home/workshop.

Cleaning white lettering on tyres.

Saw this on 4WD TV.
Guy from Mickey Thompson demonstrated on MTZs but would work for any tyres.

Rub the lettering with steelo-soap-pads. Lots of water and the soapier the better.
I've been using the cheapest black and gold pads because generally a pad won't last more than 3 tyres - they just fall apart.
But it's better than having mud stained orange lettering.

I just use the cheapie foam sanding blocks from Bunnings with the remainders of the car wash bucket on the letters. Very quick and easy.

Also just started using the Turtle Wax Liquid Ice polish. Bloody excellent on plastics inside and out! And not a bad finish on the paintwork too.
