I went out on Sunday for my third trail ride with the local ATV club. The rides cover around 75km (46mi.). Sunday there were six machines. We started with eight but one turned back because of a tire leak too big to fix and continue and the other guy road about 15km and turned back because he wasn't feeling 100% ( young enough to suffer from the night before).

We went through mud and more mud, through and over bushes and even some small logs a land owner was using to stop 4x4 pickups (firewood thieves). So... those triangular holes in the side are to let water out?

Hopefully, here is a picture of what my EPS looks like now! I didn't know there were at least three different colours of mud in Victoria Co.

What cleaning products are you planning to use to clean it down with? I know some guys are loyal to specific brands or methods of cleaning.

I'm a bit of a heathen when it comes to vehicle care.

I used a (gentle) powerwasher, then power washed with turtle was soap, followed by a rinse and then "Eagle 1 Wax as u dry". It's basically the same thing I do to an airplane minus the power-washer. The plastic already has some scratches from branches etc... so it is just trying to slow it down and protect the colour as much as possible.

Since this is my first time in such deep mud and muddy water, I'm wondering about the radiator fins being clean.
