Under car wash

Car was nice and clean, and had driven in the rain a few times.
But went out this week and is covered in salt again.
I have had trouble finding a car wash that washes underneath the car.
Petro claims to do it but not all their washes do, learned that the hard way.

Any recommendations?

2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited and waited to drop its prime rate to include all 3 drops.

I use this on all of my cars.
Ironically i already have one of these from that clearance sale years ago, though it won't connect to my non Ryobi pressure washer Angry Face
I have had no luck finding an adapter, though i never made it to Princess Auto pre lockdown.

I'm pretty sure the petro at walkers and uppermiddle does an under car spray as you're pulling in. Don't think it does a full underbody wash tho. Its a touchless one as well if you're looking for that.

Otherwise non-touchless one at appleby and dundas petro I'm pretty sure does under body.

Both require I think the higher carwash price tag tho

LOL I was going to say, "weren't you the guy that told me about the underbody washer?" :lol:

If you ever want to sell that thing for less than it sells at HD for currently... :D

Since you already have a pressure washer, just spray the under carriage from all 4 directions, it'll work fine.

Alternatively use a trick I got from my offroading days, park on top of a oscillating sprinkler, if it works for mud it'll work for salt.

I cannot reach much of it.
If i had a hoist that would be awesome.
