    Sounds cool, interested to see it on painted parts vs Megs hyper dressing.

    Sorry to say but "no".

    What I did find was hundreds of short technique focused how-to videos on my Facebook page.

    Re: Video: SONAX Plastic Care on WET ENGINE

    But

    It would have looked just as great as the results from this same type of thing. I teach both types of engine detailing in all my classes.


    The SECRET to Wet Wash Engine Detailing by Mike Phillips



    The secret is all in the sprayer....

    (plus good products and brushes)






    This will be a text book example for how to SAFELY take a really dirty and neglected engine compartment and do what I call a,

    Wet Wash Engine Detail

    A wet wash engine detail is when you use RUNNING WATER to wash the engine compartment. It also means you're going to use a dedicate ENGINE DEGREASER with a variety of brushes to SCRUB the engine and then FLUSH the engine compartment with water without causing any electrical or sensor problems.

    And for those that might not know, the other type of engine detailing is called,

    Kosmetic Engine Detailing

    And this is where you DON'T use any source of running water, i.e. a garden hose or pressure washer. You clean using a spray-on cleaner and the cleaning comes for the cleaner, some towels and elbow-grease.


    Now this is neglected and about as dirty as they come...













    See the bucket-o-brushes in the lower right hand corner of the below picture? You NEED a variety of great brushes to be effective with your time and energy.






    One reason I feel comfortable teaching complete strangers how to do a Wet Wash Engine Detailer is because the SONAX Engine Degreaser not only works great but it's safe on any surface. Thus no worries about it STAINING any surface under the hood of any car. Like polished aluminum.





    ALWAYS clean the underside of the hood first.





    Here's the Mike Phillips SECRET to never having electrical or sensor problems - use a sprayer with a SHOWER setting.

    DON'T BLAST WATER INTO PLACES IT SHOULDN'T BE!

    And this is done using a shower setting on your spray nozzle.





    After you wash and rinse the inside of the hood, now clean and scrub the engine compartment.





    My favorite engine scrubbing brush is also my favorite interior scrubbing brush and my favorite wheel face brush.






    Wheel Woolies Boar’s Hair Wheel Brush



    Low pressure - not high pressure

    And this my friends is how you work smarter, not harder. You use the cleaner, great brushes and elbow grease to do the cleaning work and the sprayer is ONLY for rinsing. People that use Pressure Washers are using the POWER of pressurized water to both clean and rinse and this is when you can create an electrical or sensor problem.

    I care not how YOU do your wet wash engine detailing but when I'm TEACHING complete strangers the art of engine detailing - I teach them the SAFE way. Later in their lives they can do it however they want to.


    Here's working smarter - not harder and most important - NO FEAR of causing a problem in some other persons' car. $$$$$$$$$$$$










    Next - blow out any standing water from any electrical connection.







    Non-sticky Engine Dressing

    Next PLASTER the entire engine compartment with SONAX Plastic Care.









    Yep - just spray this stuff EVERYWHERE!

    When done, close the hood and run the motor for about a half hour. It's the engine heat AND the moving air from the engine cooling fan that acts to quick dry the Plastic Care.






    Results are DRY to the touch.











    The above was done in about 25 minutes as that's what I teach in the class. How to do it safely and do it fast.


    Nice work everyone at the Colorado Roadshow Class in 2019
