Wheel Well Protection

Wat maak julle om julle wheel wells te protect? Ek het my lux af gespuit met die power-hose toe kom daar sulke swart stukke modderlike coating af. Ek dink die vorige eienaar het dit op gesit. Nou is ek bang die exposed body werk kry roes en dit lyk nie lekker nie. So patch patch wit verf wat deur kom.
