Today's Cleaning Project

Weather was not so good here today, so I did my annual engine bay cleaning, and pull all four wheels, touch up caliper paint, finish detailing wheel wells, and clean the back side of the rims.

The engine bay looks like it belongs to one just rolling off the assembly line.

Did you forget to use your bottle brush to clean out the exhaust pipe?

When you decide to sell, you should let the members here know. There are a lot of people that buy used cars and hope to find an owner like you.

Hey @NScherry,

How do you clean your engine compartment? I got into some mud and it got all over the engine bay. I tried rinsing it out with a gentle spray from the hose, but it isn't going anywhere.

I used a pre wash cleaner (let sit a few minutes in shaded area) and a paint brush to remove the stubborn stuff. Rinsed off with a gentle spray, and used compressed air to blow away the water droplets. Finished off with Stoners trim shine.

Give me a couple of hours and I'll be right there (since you do have some mad skills on a Cherry Red vehicle)
