Default Lets see those "CLEAN" engine bays

So I'm going to try tackling cleaning the trruck top to bottom sunday weather permitting and if i feel up to the task. Im going to be doing alot of stuff to her like putting the truck on jack stands and taking off all 4 wheels and then washing her with a pressurewasher. Then while I have the wheels off, i will clean them up really good and throw a coat of wax on them. Then im going to wash, clay, polish and wax the truck. then take my toolbox off and clean and polish it. then take and clean my seats up really good and vacuum the entire interior. then clean engine bay. For some reason, i dont think i will get this all done!

So that got me to thinking, we ALWAYS see everyones clean rides, lets see some clean engines!

I don't have a clean engine bay but I'd recommend cleaning the engine bay first so you don't splash all the grease and grime all over your freshly waxed truck....

LOL...thanks. I have an 06' so I don't have grease and grime...lol. My motor and all still looks brandnew except for dust from the granite quarry I work at
. But yeah I plan on washing it first.

How do I go about this. Let engine cool down a bit then douse with simple green (do I dilute?) Then rinse and dry and then detail with armourall or what?

Default Re: Lets see those "CLEAN" engine bays

how do i clean my engine bay? ive been wanting to do that for a while but am sort of afraid to. i was told to just cover the battery and a few other parts and rinse it down with the hose. but i dont know. just seems sort of scary. dont really want to get water anywhere that im not supposed to you know.
