Re: engine cleaning

if you keep it clean regularly you wont need anything special as it wont build up to a point where anything more than normal cleaners are needed

Re: engine cleaning

Do you guys just cover the battery, airbox, and fuse box with plastic bags and hose down? I have to admit that I've been gunshy to spray under the hood.

Re: engine cleaning

i use waterless car wash (DWG International´┐Ż - Manufacturer of Dri Wash 'n Guard´┐Ż) for any paint under the hood or powdercoated surfaces. For rubber I use meguiars interior detailer. I use a little brush to get dust out from stuff.

I use a cheaper (non california duster) to get in all the little areas and keep it dusted.

Re: engine cleaning

all other ways are good but a power washer takes all that other stuff right off. Makes your rims look like new. Tire slick will make your tire look awsome to.
