    Engine bay cleaner & engine bay detailer

    I have not needed to really clean any of my engine compartments / bays for literally decades, & when I did (I was a twenty year old back in the '70's )-- all I ever used was that spray can of gunk and left it be. Well now I have a older vehicle that I need to clean the engine bay and I NEED something WAY better mainly for two reasons
    1) I just had it re-painted last week &
    2) I hated that odor that the gunk left

    What are you fellas using to clean---- then detail the engine bays with now -a- days??
    I would hope to find an aerosol spray for the detailing part of it
    Thanks

    A good APC and a brush to clean.

    To detail I use 303 Aero on all the plastic pieces, but since you mentioned you wanted an aerosol ...

    Meguiars Plastic & Vinyl Coating, exterior trim coating, trim dressing, vinyl protectant

    Yea I do like the aerosol sprays mainly for ease of application AND uniformity

    Protect the paint by letting it cure a bit longer before you take on the engine cleaning unless your going to detail it with APC and brush with no water hose or pressure washer.
