Calcium Chloride and other salts, ice melting
agents, road oil and tar, tree sap, bird droppings,
chemicals from industrial chimneys and other foreign
matter may damage the finish if left on the painted
surfaces. Prompt washing may not completely remove
all these deposits. additional cleaners may be
required. When using chemical cleaners developed for
this purpose, make sure they are safe for use on
painted or polished surfaces.

and dust control can collect on underbody surfaces.

thoroughly flush these materials from the underbody
