Default Tedious task of handwashing frame and undercarriage

Yesterday, I got home and thought it might be a good idea to wash my frame and stuff. Glad i did, it was dirty! Winter was rough on the poor thing. I parked in the yard, put a large board down and went to town. I ended up getting soaked from dripping water and laying in it...lol. I washed the frame, rear axle, front end (best i could) and underbody. All i used was Dawn, degreaser, and a scrubbrush and scrubbing pad. I didnt take any pics of before, but everything definitly came clean! Then I washed and waxed the truck. I didn't get a pic of that until today. now its raining...lol.











Didnt take many pics as i was in a hurry to beat dark. I noticed that it's time to paint my fender wells again.

Looks sharp, I've been contemplating cleaning my frame up but I don't think I have the patience to do it when I know it will just get dirty again.
