Engine Cleaning P21s, Aerospace Protectant

I bought a good bit of stuff from Greg @ Detailed Image to detail my car but I simply haven't had the time to use it all yet. But today I decided to at least give a go at the engine cleaning. Now keep in mind I did this very quickly and in the future will be much better at it, but this entire process (including a quick beer run before putting the aerospace protectant) probably took me 10-15 minutes impin:


Here is what I used, the brushes are VERY soft plastic and very versatile.

I'll let the pics do the talking but remember, only about 10 minutes worth of work (am sure if I had spent more times it would have been even better, it's not perfect but it's a huge improvement) :

And FYI, these pics were all taken before putting the Aerospace Protectant

Needless to say, am very happy about the product

Here is some pics with the protectant



I am worth $2,010,238 on HumanForSale.com

Very nice job on the engine and good job on finding Todd's DIY write-up. He's one of the most knowledgeable detailers out there and the DIYs on detailedimage.com should help a lot of people doing what you just did.

Keep it up man, looks good!
