    Hi guys. A question here. What solution i should use to clean of the engine bay? I saw some carwash spraying the engine bay to clean it off but i would not want to do that myself. Any recommended solution that i can use to clean the engine bay so that it will look a bit better than right now (dusts and oil spill).

    And it is safe to use waterjet to clean the engine bay?

    Wow, that looks spotless!! Impressive job. Will give that a go. It is just sad that i can see some rusts in my engine bay, mainly the areas near all the nuts. I'll try to clean off the engine bay, if the rusts starts to bother me, i guess i will have to send the car to a paint shop to have the engine bay repainted.

    I've also used the cheap Tesco kitchen degreaser with a brush followed by the hose

    I use Tesco products as they are bunny approved :Smile:
