Get rid of that collected dirt in ur frongt guards !!!

Hey guys,

I know dirt build up in the E - series front guards (behinnd the plastic flapswhen u take the wheels off) is a problem because ive had 3 and had to remove dirt from all 3 of them otherwise it will rust the front section of the guard out

all this in the pic was removed from 1 side only , Dosent look much in the pic but it coveres the bottom of a 100L container wich is about 40 x 80cm in size

Thanks for the tip. I've also removed the pinch moulding Ford fitted to the rear guard lip on each side, the amount of crud under those is surprising. Looks tidier too.

when you say the pinch moulding do you mean the plastic that is held on by rivets that you have to drill out

No, there was a pinch moulding that was fitted to the edge where the inner and outer guards are spot welded together. If your guard lip doesn't have it, it's probably been removed already.
