Engine bay cleaning

Post by Barraclough » Sun Feb 14, 2016 1:07 pm

Can anybody give a little guide in giving the full engine bay a good clean and what products to use? Mines not the cleanest.

Also what paints best for the plastic engine cover?

A lot cleaner than mine pal [emoji106] auto glym do a really good engine cleaner, I used that on mine sprayed loads over everything (kept clear of the electric of course) let it soak in for 10 mins and got my self a pack of paint brushes from b and q and used them to give the engine a good scrub then I rinsed down with the steam cleaner we have (missus wasn't overly amused with that [emoji87]) came out a lot better than it was.

Other than that mate I really rate this stuff called gunk. It's awesome used it on my motorbike engines and stuff brilliant really cuts into the grime
