I have done mine. Take plastic bags an cover all of the electrical components an belts. Spay it with mean green, put the water hose on mist an go over it. Then I take a plastic cleaner an wipe down all hard plastic parts an use spray detailer on the metal. I then start the engine to help it dry.

Engine degreaser. You can pick up a can for about $3 at an autoparts store.

Black magic works good on hoses and other stuff under hood. If its not real greasy just use water + soap. Mine gets more dusty so I just wipe down once a week.

I just used some F21 as a quick fix before I head to a HUGE car show tomorrow. We'll see how it looks in the sun with other Mustang around lol.

Sadly it won't. The show is huge and it attracts some serious cars. I entered because I'll already be there working for the sponsoring company, the entry is free, and I'll be parked with friends who will guard my car.
