Default How can you make mud stick on your car?

Hi!
I'm entering a local car show next week and want to roll in with a dirt filled car. I need to roll in 830PM the night before the showoff and leave it there overnight. Any idea how to get the mud to stick to my car? I'm not really a rally type so I don't know. I've thought about taking a bucket of soil and putting a DROP of elmer's glue and a bit of water, mixing it, and using a paintbrush and just splat it on my car.

Anybody have any serious solutions to how to make it stick for two days? I have a week to figure it out and I'm totally out of ideas. Thanks!

Derek

Wash and wax the car VERY nice, and then go mudding (avoiding the ruts, wouldn't want to break anything) and enjoy your freshly muddy car.

I don't want any dirt underneath my car as it'll take years to remove. Plus around ym area, only muddy place would be where all the rocks are. Don't want 10 dings just to get mud.

The glue thing was a suggestion from somebody who actually rallies at a competitive level. And he is/was dead serious.

Anybody else with some ideaS?

No way your gonna get mud to look fresh for 2 days. It will dry out after a few hours. (Unless you add some nice fresh horse poop, don't think you want to do that)

That's EXACTLY what I'm thinking. Will it stick though...even if it does dry up?

Dried up dirt is probably as best as u can get it unless u bring a bucket of that recipe posted above and splash it on as show go'ers walk on by.

Nothing wrong with dried up dirt.. just make sure the parts that aren't covered are shiny and clean. hehe

Get lots of dirt...
find a parking lot
get lots of water
add water to dirt
drive through it

The best way is to actually drive through mud...that will look the best, thick mud will stick and still look ok, but it will dry out.

Even just muddy water should look ok.

Arent there any homes being built in your area? If not go where they ARE being built, hook up a hose, and make the area muddy and drive through it.

While youre planning everything, you might as well decide what kind of color you'd like for the new paintjob

I can't imagine trying to put mud on and make it look like you drove through it, you'd need to do some crazy spattering in all directions from where the tires are... sounds like a pain...

But if you do figure all that out i don't think you'll have a problem keeping it on your car, especially if you're indoors. I don't have a garage and if it's been rainy and i've been playing in the dirt, it's there for days, no problem at all... unless it rains again... and that's with some driving around. Getting it to stay on shouldn't be a problem at all... just getting it on and looking good (or should i say bad?) will be the tricky part without real mud puddles to splash through.

I'd probably spend the time looking for someplace that you could muddy up rather than figuring out how to decorate it with mud... but that could be pretty tricky depending on where you live.

Can't you just find a muddy lot? Maybe even run the water hose in your back yard for an hour or 2 and make your own mud? A couple good doughnuts in each direction should do the trick.

You have to find construction site around your town. Check the place during the day. When all workers will go home you will start your project. Clean your car very nice, donít do any waxing. When you will get there just drive around very hard. Trust me the mud will stay on your car long time. Will be hard to wash. Good luck

take some water in a bucket, and put mud in it, make it thick, then splash it on youre doors fo it will look like it came off your tires. Just do that alot and you'll be fine. It would look too fake if the underboday was clean. Just have some fun in it and spend more time cleaning it after the show.

Default yeah thats it

Glue it on. That should work. Here are steps...

1. Put car in 1st, drive to nearest path
2. Get it as dirty as possible, remember it don't count in a show unless your scheme flows to the inside so make sure you stop and get out a couple of times.
3. Get back in the car, drive home, go to show, then lose bc you got put in the Import Other class with 3 50K Audi's (this happened to me) and then go home, let it rain a couple of times, the get the ol' brush out and go to scrubin..

Whats the old sayin, if you wanna play you gotta pay...

The mud will come off eventually. If not, who looks at the underside of you car anyways? Good luck.

you could get a bunch of AL foil...
cover all the parts that you don't want to get muddy w/ AL foil, then go mudding

when you're done remove the foil and it'll be clean
