I trust all of us already subscribe to Petrolicious, but if you don't, here's a link Very Happy
http://petrolicious.com/cleaning-a-classic-car-with-dry-ice-is-actually-a-thing

I love the style of their films about cars and their owners, but that's for another thread Smile

That's a great post...well done and very interesting to read about. Given the salt and corrosion issue for cold countries, seems like a great idea for the spring to do

I really can't recommend Petrolicious enough. They have a great style that lets you just enjoy the people and the cars without any presenter egos getting in the way Smile

Not about cleaning, but this recent film about a 964 and it's owner is an excellent watch:

But back to the dry-ice cleaning - the most intresting thing about it is how it's used to clean up wires, looms, pipes etes because it isn't very abrasive - it gave great results!

I believe a forum members 993 had its undercarriage cleaned with this method.

I don't know how much it cost but would love to get my cars done at some point.
