sub frame cleaning.

Not sure if this is the correct place for this, if not maybe someone will move it.

I've seen a lot of posts asking how to clean the inside of the subframe. Thought I would share what I used.



its A brush on a flexible shaft with extensions. It will fit inside the subframe and brush any rust/scale/dirt, I ran it in from both directions, Blow out with the air nozzle and repeat. surprising how much crud comes out. I haven't tried yet, but it looks like it would fit inside the rocker as well.

Re: sub frame cleaning.

I shudder to think what's still on the inside of mine. Came from Tennessee, so anything's liable to be in there I'm still debating whether to use it on this build or get something else. If 'something else' is used, this could be good to know
Definitely let us know how it works for you!

Remember you're unique...just like everyone else...

Great call out!

Re: sub frame cleaning.

It works great, Its not a very stiff bristled brush but easily can run from the end of the frame to the coil spring pocket and clean out loos crud, scale, and rust. If it was warmer I would use some simple green/water to clean further.
