Engine Detail

Here is my first engine detail of the year. Many people have their own way of detailing the motor but i do it the old fashion way, time and some elbow grease. lol. I wiped everything down with spray away window cleaner on a rag and then went back over all the hoses and plastic pieces with meguiars natural shine wipes. it will get another detail again in a month when the car show comes closer and it will get a deep shine to make it pop.

Nice. Good job. Nothing like a clean engine bay.

Thanks. I am very particular when it comes to cleaning her. I even use q-tips in the hard to reach places.

I almost bought a cyber grey camaro but I also liked the silver and it hides the dirt a little better until u get up close to it.

Silver is super forgiving. And looks amazing when it's all cleaned up.

I have a thing for silver cars. Every car I've owned has been silver. I'm loving the fact on my camaro you can't see the rock chips on front facia until your right up close. The primer blends in

My front bumper looks like shit. It seems like every time I wash it new rock chips or paint comes off. I almost want to get it reprinted and put on that film.
