I'm always annoyed when pine needles & leaves accumulate under my hood in places where I can't reach them. I took a look under the hood today and did some close inspecting and finally decided enough was enough. The only fix was to take out 3 of the screws that keep the plastic protector in place in the front wheel wells, and "blast" it out w/a high pressure hose. This took care of most of the problem, but there was a bunch that I had to remove by hand. Honestly between the 2 wheel wells I must've removed approximately 4lbs of the stuff! I've had my GXP for 5yrs as of 6/27 so this must've been building up over the past 5yrs. I was wondering if it would be advisable to get a good coat of wax in there or if the stock paint would be enough to keep everything from oxidizing. Any ideas?
