Default Back in the mud slop

Video to follow in the next day or so, but I think I'll give it a bath now before becoming a road hazard flinging mud everywhere.

wow that is some mud! How did the XV handle in all that? And I don't even think I could've waited to take a picture before washing it, but that's just me.

A little sliding action but that was at like 15-20mph in 3-4-5" thick mud and gunk so expected. I tossed a video up of it on Monday, and I'll have another one later today/tomorrow. Both times it was fine.

Washing: Tossed about $10 at the do-it-yourself bays and that got about 90% of it off. Then another $15 minutes at the house scraping and spraying and scraping. Don't want the little rocks to do damage to the brakes or shocks or whatever they can get themselves into. I still have the undercarriage to do, but I'll deal with that tomorrow.

Fun

Get yourself some GTechniq C1.5.

When you're all clean, just spray and wipe. Everything but the windows. Then the next time you go mudding, that first DIY wash bay will get everything off in 5min.
