I purchased the instant video to see what tricks you use for detailing the engine bay. It was very informative. I would never have thought it possible to detail my diesel engine inside my wife's side of the garage (the big side) without a mess - but using your methods, it worked perfectly.
I spent about 4 hours and consider this my "first stage". I stopped cleaning when the visible sections of the engine, plumbing and hoses were clean and shiny with protectant because I drive my car several times a week and deeper cleaning (lower block and under areas) doesn't seem a good investment now.
Appreciate all the help and so does " Otto ".
