Cleaning Your Ride !!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just read a thread on another site about cleaning your machine, there were a couple of different tip`s. I don`t have a air compressor so i was wondering the best way to clean my buggie. I have taken the electronic`s and motor out and washed it with a hose then used WD40 on the bearing`s and part`s that my rust or seize. I also washed it with the motor still on and did the same as above, i also used brake cleaner and a tooth brush. I take it all apart every couple of week`s depending on how dirty it get`s
What is the best way to keep it clean ??

I plan on getting a compressor this summer. The excuse to the wife will be because it's for renovating etc. but it'll really be to blow off the rc's! I use a paint brush most of the time, and sometimes a bit of air can cleaners but those are expensive and I usually save them for my pc/electronics. I still think the best way to keep it clean is to leave it on the shelf, but who the hell wants to do that?

Best investment I have ever made, a Campbell/Hausfield 3 gallon 3/4 hp air compressor.

Boy it makes life easy! Other than that, I just use hot water paper towels and a paint brush.
