Default Detailed my engine yesterday

Covered all electrical stuff with either a grocery bag, or some plastic wrap.
Hosed down the engine bay with a light mist from the hose.
Then I soaked everything with Simple Green (full strength!).
Hosed down everything and dried.
After that I removed the spark plug cover and dried under there....water collected there a bunch.
I used Armorol on all the hoses and plastic areas.

Good job!

Simple green is good stuff! I like using Gunk for when there is a lot of caked on mess (Like from my old VW!)

Yes please do tell us.

However I know it probably took a few hours and some hand scrubbing.
