I have been looking for a shop that can/will Steam clean both top and bottom of my cars at a reasonable cost I have three I would like done right now possibly four.
The two 240's had oil leaks I fixed those but they are a mess underneath and would love to see them look like the day they came off the boat.

Do the engine yourself. Undercarriage, there are some drive through car washes that claim to get the undercarriage, not sure how it turns out, I wonder if they use hot water underneath. Call a detail shop around you and ask how they would approach something like this.

I have tried three diferent car washs They do very little I guess if you had a car that was basicly new they would keep it that way but they did not even touch on the mess under the test car I used.
Maybe a Truck place? or someplace that does off road suv's etc?

Yah the off road guys love hosing mud off. But you are talking about the belly of an old abused oil saturated 240 right?

our detailer have a boiling water pressure washer, it works awesome to get all the caked on oil and crud. They can do undercarridges too if you need it. Call over here and tell them Collan said to call and you should get a better price usually they give OVT discounts for most things, not sure about details. No harm in asking though.
