Cleaned up my engine bay the other day

It was filthy, its still not 100% how I want it, but it looks a lot better. I just sprayed some simple green on it and rinsed it off, then went to town with a drying towel on it and it mad it look like this. I still want to get it REAL clean, but thats tough to do with a daily driver and actually keep up with it. Heres some pictures i took today, kinda random but kinda cool too.

Looks real clean. After we got done installing my C/C plates this w/e, Brad said they "really stand out"

and I thought, yeah, cuz they're the only thing under the hood that's been clean in at least 2 years, lol..

I wish I could get my manifold to look that clean. I can generally keep it clean by just wiping everything off with a wet rag.

Re: Cleaned up my engine bay the other day

polish the raised parts of that manifold lettering and border, and paint the inside(the scaled lower part) of the cobra red(or paint the raised part red and leave the lower part black) to match the car.

other than that, i could eat off it.

I plan to do the 5.0 liter in black, the Cobra in red, then the outline all black.

Id also polish the cobra on there... i just dont know how to do the polishing.
