harbor freight is your friend
6 piece dental pick set $3.99
4 piece automotive pick set $1.99

something i am going to try is i think they sell it auto parts stores . its tape for your rocker panels to help keep stone chips from chipping the paint.
its clear and about 2 in wide. very tough stuff. i have a roll in my toolbox at work.
next time i goto the track im going to put some on and try it out.

wasnt there someone on here selling a film for the bottom of your car to help rpevent this also. i will look to see if i can find it.

One thing it would help prevent is that occasional screw backing out, besides protection. Seems reasonably priced i guess?

Try a roll of contact paper. You can cover the whole bottom of chassis with it.

That's exactly what I do. No problem at all.

I use he next hex sise down, push it in while twisting back and forth. I don't make full turns with it, just small twists till the dirt loosens up. blow the crud out and rock on.

Toothbrush, glass of water, can of beer.

Dip the toothbrush in water and give the screws a good scrub, repeat a few times and most of the dirt comes out.

Leave wet car on bench to dry, drink can of beer on porch.

Go and get nice dry car and pull apart
