A Salted Frozen Black Batmobile in the NorthEast - Can the paint take it??? Lets see

NYC Area winter use brings about pain and suffering for the Frozen Black M5!! Lets put it to the test for everyone thinking "frozen" can't take a salt beating...

Steps are as follows:
- Go get her all salted and dirty and throw in some bone-chilling cold temps for about 3 weeks;
- Powerwash it with 40deg wand
- Foam the livin crap out of it and let it sit
- Wash with WookieMitt and 2 bucket method
- Rinse using powerwash again
- Air blast it with AirForce Master Blaster

Only time you touch it...... is with the wookie

Done!

How do you foam it like that? I did the 2 bucket method on Super Bowl Sunday when it was 50 degrees.

Also wow, Frozen black looks shiny when wet, SO interesting!!! I think you've permanently have changed my perception of Frozen colors.

Loving it man! Please take care of her! And here I thought I was babying my Sapphire Black Metallic by not even attempting to drive her in the salt. You sir are taking it to whole new level.

Likely a foam cannon from auto geek or equivalent. Works like a charm.

BTW - GladiatorOwner - I see you haven't dropped her yet; have you somehow avoided that bug? You had your '10 dropped and modded all to hell before you ever posted pix of it over on m5board.

I just ordered new shoes for mine... Looking forward to showing them off here in a couple months...

Does it do a good cleaning job or do you still need to use a microfiber mitt to get off the crap?

Yes as mentioned, autogeek's foam cannon for pressure washers- with their meticulous matt foaming juice. Adds about 15 minutes but I think its worth the extra step. I can get it to look like someone dumped cool whip all over it if I want to.

Yeah, most of us dont keep these beast for more than a few years before we give it the send off for the newer faster one so not worried too much with the salt but I was worried that it was so damn dirty for 3 weeks AND VERY curious how difficult/easy it would clean up since I never let it go this long. Had to wait till the temp reached 35 and just toughed it out like a dumb ass. My neighbors must think I'm nuts.

I'm holding off on the drop (8 months now, ha) and wheels. The roads are garbage around here plus if I swap the car (not any time soon) I dont have to deal with the change back. So far, I'm hold'in.

I would say about 90 minutes. I didnt do the wheels very well, just needed the grime and salt off the paint. It was driving me nutso.

You still need to go over it with a mitt.

The matte clear coat is defiantly more durable than many people think.

Frozen Grey is much easier to maintain and keep in prime shape than Frozen Black though.

Good wash technique is critical with detailing frozen paintworks. Having a proper coat of sealant and using the right detailing tools makes maintenance and life in general much easier.
