Hi Guys n Gals, here's the situation, came back from Rainbow trip and cleaned the truck, gave the underbody a good spraying with the house and found that there is a lot of places in and around the wheel wells where dirt n sand is getting, like inside the flare in the wheel arch. I was thinking of using rubber strips to seal off these areas to try and stop the crap building up. Has anyone done this? Am i just creating a bigger problem? What type of rubber would be best?

You are better off leaving it. Sand and dirt will still get in there if you block it off and it will make it harder to clean it out. The metals that modern cars are made from are way less suseptable(sp) to rust so it isnt too much of an issue. Cheers

Cheers Glen, thought that might be the case, was my biggest fear.
