Thoughts on frame maintenance

Any opinions or experience on running an Avanti through a car wash with high pressure undercarriage spray?  Wondering if it would help to keep the frame and hog troughs clean and shiny or if water will pool up and dissolve the undercarriage like a fizzie. Seems like it might help clean up some of the oil drips.  Mike

I think it would be a good move....I don't think water is really the problem of rusted frames & hog troughs....What does them in is the aggressive nature of road salt used in certain areas of the country....Mild steel of any automotive thickness simply can't stand up to calcium chloride.

A thorough underside wash with clean water to remove salt & debris could only help preserve the frame.:)
