Couldn't have said it better, pressurized water does the trick! I used to take an oil change ramp, and drive one wheel up it, then clean the two exposed wheel wells. Then, swap.

 

My $0.02 :thumbsup:

I like that idea.

 

I'll try the pressure washer too, I just think some of the winter grime may need some agitation. I have plenty of APC and GWC to do the trick though.

I don't own a pressure washer, and my floor jack won't fit under my GTO. After the wash, and spraying the wheel wells with APC and a wide "fan" stream of water: I'll pull her back into the garage, lay on the floor on my back and wipe out what I can with an old worn out cotton towel with VRT on it. Most all the visible areas in the wheel wells are plastic and clean pretty well this way.

I get one side partially on ramps do the lifted side then switch. I saw Adam mention this before and it works great. If you have a low car check out Race Ramps. They have a low profile ramp that can be used with lowered cars. Alec you may be out of luck though. 1.5 inches is pretty darn low.

rofl, those things could never fit under my car. My frame rails are 1.5" off the ground and the front bumper is about .5-.75" off the ground.
