Engine Bay Cleaned!

Hey guys just wanted to show my engine bay. I just cleaned it today. First time since I got the car from the dealership 2 yrs. ago Its a big difference compared when it was all dusty and dirty.

All stock and no mods in the engine dept. so don't be hatin'

Let me know what you think

Thanks man!
I used dishwashing soap (Palmolive), a sponge, plastic bags (to cover alternator and other stuff), a garden hose and lastly Meguiar's Vinyl & Plastic conditioner/cleaner.

Make sure your engine is cool before cleaning and after you're done you gotta turn on the engine to warm it up and let the remaining wet spots evaporate faster.

Thank you. I heard that Orange degreaser or Simple Green works as well but mine doesn't have much grease. Its basically just dust and dirt. Next time maybe I'll try a degreaser and compare the difference.

i got the same thing. i bought that package for the paint not knowing that the package also included the under coating. now i have a dirty engine bay and i don't even need under coating because i don't drive the car in the winter

Thank you guys for all the comments

Well basically we covered the alternator and a few wires. I can't remember which wires anymore Make sure you use a hose nozzle then choose shower so you won't have too much water pressure.
