    Cleaned the engine bay this weekend.....

    Okay, this could have taken all day, so I'll except any **** you want to blow me about the end results. After about 40 mins I was honestly bored with it.


    What I used:
    Heavy duty industrial grade degreaser
    Hose water
    Heavy duty scrubber pad
    General Cleaner
    Wash rag

    I would have to remove things to really get a good cleaning on it, but the intake manifold looks 100x better now. It was a VERY dark gray before I started, now it looks like it's metal :lol: The before pictures would have been better if the sun would have been behind the clouds. I'm satisfied with the results for 40 mins worth of work.

    Before:




    After:

    Regular cleanings (2-4 months) will maintain the look.

    Every 2 - 4 months is all it takes.

    Plastic bag over the alternator and when using the hose try and avoid the electronics... when done I start the car and let it run till the temp needle is as normal... this will evaporate most of the water you cant get to dry up by cloth...
