Wash and Engine Bay Cleaning
 
Went to NX-1 today and Mario being the nice guy he is, allowed me to use his supplies so I could clean the engine and Jeep myself. :) Thanks bro!

Due to the bad winter we had here, my engine bay looked like poop. And so did the rest of the Jeep. LOL

Anyways, here are some before and after pics.

Supplies used for wash:

Meguiars Super Soap
2 buckets with Grit Guards
Wash Mitt
Scrubing Brush for the Wheel Wells
Power washer
Shop Vac (to air dry) :D
Westleys Bleach White (inside of rims, wheel wells, and tires)
Meguiars Hot Rims Foaming wheel cleaner (face of the rims, second rinse of the insides of the rims, and the painted Brembo Calipers)
Meguiars NXT Aerosol Tire Shine Spray (used the QBNKID no sling method also) :D


Supplies for the Engine Bay:


Chemical Guys Degreaser (diluted 50/50)
Chemical Guys- Bare Bones Dressing
Power washer

Nope.

I sure will, if you'll pay the tickets I get. I got 3 in one month, so I did this.

I snip off the plate when I go to meets and the track and zip tie it back on.
