  • How to detail your engine compartment?

    So can anyone give advise on how to make the engine bay look new(show quality)? I've never washed an engine and I don't want to just go hosing things that maybe shouldn't get hosed.

        I had never seen any of his videos until I watched one on how to clay. He gives great instructions!

                I've never washed mine, I've always just wiped mine down everytime i wash my car and on all my hoses, i use Adam's In and out Spray. I'm too scared to get my engine wet....

                  I wash mine. I just put a plastic bag over my cold air. But I don't blast it water. Adams Car Polishes has a good short video on how to wash your engine bay too.

                      A gentle spray from the hose, clean with a (soapy) soft long bristle brush then blow dry and top off with some type of detail spray. That worked on mine and it looks pretty fair.

                            I have decided that engine bays for cars that drive on the road will never be of a nice show quality (unless you want to spend hours wiping the damn thing down). I just use a can of gunk and then use CD2. Works great for a 20 min job!
