Default Inexpensive Homemade Undercarriage Washer!!

Hi there,
Please check out my video that will show you how to make an inexpensive undercarriage washer to keep your car's undercarriage clean from all that road salt and sand! I hope you enjoy it and will try making your own at home

ps. I know my car in the video is not a Subie but I felt this video will help a lot of Subaru owners out esp after driving it all winter!

Nice, it's simple and inexpensive, I like it! Have you thought about a metal version with pressure washer nozzles to use with a pressure washer? I've kicked around the idea of a 2-nozzle system like that but haven't taken the time to try to make anything yet.

Thanks! And yeah ive thought about it but this was was super inexpensive with great quality and with the holes at that size you stil get a great amount of pressure! Testing not under a car it shoots about 15-20 feet in the air so that gives you a good feel for be pressure behind it

Oh wow that's pretty cool! The underside of our time attack cars could definitely use a good cleaning like that.

thanks, I'm glad you think its a good idea, give it a try building one! it's easy to build and really inexpensive! saves a bunch of money than having to pay for an undercarriage cleaning all the time at a car wash or if you're like me and don't take your car to a car wash.

Thanks, man! Definitely, give it a try it works great and comes in handy so much! yeah, i can imagine i live in the northeast and the roads look like the beach with all the sand and salt on them haha.
let me know how you make out making one and if you have any questions!
also, make sure you read the description of the video, there was a typo in the video on one of the measurements the correct measurement is in the description.

That's a pretty cool idea.
The only thing I didn't see was if you indicated during assembly was how to orient the perforated pipe with the rest of the set-up.

Put that pipe in the wrong way and you have to do it all over again. Of course, that's what would happen if I did it.

You should add a disclaimer:
Make sure you watch the video a couple of times before attempting.
If you assemble it wrong, don't blame me

thanks! and yeah I can see what you're saying... that's why I saved that part for last so you put the piece in with the holes in last so you can align it according to how the rest of the PVC is lined up. Ill def add something in the description stating to ensure you line up with the holes facing up! wouldn't want to mess that one up haha thanks for the tip!
