Looks great. I notice that you sprayed your belts - did you get any slippage/squealing afterwards?

Very Nice, i know it seemed like mine thanked me after i gave her a nice cleaning on the inside.

The Belts didnt squeak because the F-21 Turtle wax is not a grease compound kind of spray. If it was, your belts would just come right off the wheels when you accelerated, Not to mention all of the crap from the roads (on and off) would just collect on the grease compound and cause alot more problems than you want. And looks bad!

cover your alternator, battery, and air intake (and fuse box if you want) and as long as those parts dont get water on them, you can go to town with the hose and degreaser.

That's good to know. I power washed the engine bay last weekend and it didn't turn out nearly as well as I was hoping it would. So the Mcquires works just as good as say a degreaser or do you have to use both in order to get all the crud cleaned off? Really curious honestly because that looks awesome man!

the mcguiers tire foam gives it the shiny look. get the engine brite or two if really dirty and spray on and let it sit for 15 minutes. or longer then rinse it all off. and after that spray the tire foam all over everything and then close the hood and drive home or if your home just leave it running so the foam can leave the resude and bake on the parts then get a towel and dry everything off so the access foam wont leave a water stain look
