Default Cleaned the Engine bay

Really was not that dirty. Was time to clean the air filter though. So why it dried I cleaned up the engine bay

Kinda dirty


Soaking with some simple green


Clean and shiny

Just used Simple green and my other secret weapon that will remain nameless.

Plus I dont wanna give it out due to how hard it is to find in stores. I had to have a guy in another state send it to me.
