Rear Storage Boxes.

Man has two rear storage boxes made out of aluminum chequer plate, partially lined with rubber.

Because these boxes are used to store equipment that comes in contact with the soil (levelling ramps, jacking blocks etc.) particular care was taken to remove all traces of soil and dust. First with a pressure washer...

...including the rubber drain pipe in the floor of each box.

As with many other parts of Man it was found that a stiff brush and hot water was needed, even after several minutes of pressure washing.

Just to be sure these boxes were also cleaned with a suitable "agricultural" disinfectant (Jeyes Fluid). Hence the rubber gloves.

A final inspection.

The end result was slightly better than when new!

Total time about 5 hours.
