Frame/Underbody Cleaning Solutions

I am working on cleaning up the frame and underbody of a 1963 Chevy Pick Up.

After many hours of scraping, spraying de-greaser and wiping I am still not as clean as I would like to be.

Any ideas, secrets, home remedies to helping get the frame and suspension clean. Looks like years of grease and dirt build up on parts of the frame but mostly all over most components of the suspension.

Thanks for the help.

a pressure washer helped get most of the junk from my 59 ford undercoating wipes off with laquer thinner or wax and grease remover .also having it on a rotisserie sure saves a lot of crap in your eyes and aching back and neck .did my 59 chevy laying underneath and it was no fun

A heat gun will help you soften some of that stuff before scraping. As well E-Z Off oven cleaner will help you out a lot. It is "lye" based which is used in the "hot tank" used by engine builders. It is very corrosive so use eye protection and cover bare skin. Also cover and protect things usch as wires and hoses. Spray it on and wait 20 minutes. Scrap the crud off and use a wire brush on the hard to get stuff. Wash it off with a pressure washer. The rest is just hard work like you have been doing.
