    Engine cleanup

    Cleaning up question.

    This is the best pic I could find:


    I want to clean up the waterpump and the area just around it. What's the best way of doing this. You know, just trying to clean up under my hood a bit. (Sorry about the old pic)

    Simple Green and some gloss black spray paint on a few items and a little bit of polishing will improve the appearance of your engine bay 100%

    Back to Black isn't a spray. You apply it to a clean cloth/rag and wipe it into the plastic/rubber.

    I'm not too fond of the Mother's back to black. It makes it look darker for a little while, sure, but doesn't last. I would rather paint the plastic parts gloss black. Just My Opinion.

    Yeah, I've been cleaning under the hood little by little. And as you can see from the last pic, I just need to focus a little on the engine itself (heads). Painted covers for the fuse boxes is next.

    Thanks!

    But like with everything, there's always something a little bit more that can be improved. Just trying to be careful not to go overboard. Just looking for a clean, unique look under the hood.
