Fishbonezken (correct spelling? If wrong, sorry ya..) posted the basic of engine detailing. Well it's not that difficult actually if up you know how. I just clean my old wira engine 2 days ago when I got nothing to do at home at that time. 11 years never been cleaned and it was horrible. And the bad thing is all I have was a bottle of KIT degreaser and 3 used toothbrushes. Not an engine detailing, as it is not 100% clean, but I would say it is 60-70% clean though and I'm quite satisfied with it, given that I only have 3 toothbrush and lazy to go out to get more brushes haha....will post some pics soon

nothing is impossible to whom who believe it

would you believe from this (turning a 5 years old ride engine into Show room condition)

outlet manifolds - or folded before


O Power clean applied on the brushes & brush off & rinse off with water


ta da



closer look


remember the dirty looking harry

ROOKIE ARM (oppss again) i mean rocker arms
before pic


ta da


and
Back ground
No - high pressure jet - only a few pairs of brushes & hands

But as for me.....I had a little help from my apprentice - my youth (14 years old) from a children home(orphanage) - who love detailing & we did it together



Alien no rinse unlike others super degreaser that contain carcinogen class 3 cancer causing agent....
use it discreetly....as it is flammable & harsh to both your paint and hands


tool for the day
