LT/BMW Salt Resistance?
OK I live n PA but we got salt, tons of it all over our roads. Well now we just got a bunch of rain and everything had dew hanging off it this am.
I would think that when rain hits salt, then fogs, and dew is formed, it contains salt.
I did spent the day washing and waxing so it is clean now. I have pretty hot water available, and I use a leaf blower to dry it that I love sharing with my grass cutting loving neighbors.
I had it on the lift and sprayed from every point I could spray to try and get all I can clean. Used a rag well soaped in every opening I could get to.
The reason I ask is the hardware on my HD got really crappy even after the same type of care. Mostly the Head Bolts and such.
But on I BMW since you need to spray into vents and side openings, is what you cant reach with your hand and a rag OK? Is getting the bath with got hot soapy water enough to keep it ?
Do the motor and innards and such hold up to salt corrosion with reasonable (standing on your head with a hose) care?
How about you guys on that Ocean Breeze Property? How, and what do you guys do? Just plenty of water?
