My engine bay detailing

I spent a few hours cleaning up the engine bay, I haven't got any before photo's but the results were great! I started out by covering any electrical connectors and important bits, and then just sprayed autoylm engine and machine cleaner all over the bay and underside of the bonnet, left to settle for a few minutes and then using various brushes and cloths cleaned it up bit by bit. Then rinsed down carefully with the hose on the spray jet, and then used autogylm plastic and rubber protector to give it a nice shine. This was a couple of months ago and it's still looking good now

Great job. Your brake fluid reservoir looks brand new? Was it replaced?

No I didn't replace anything! I was quite amazed at how clean everything came up, I thought a lot of the oil and gunk was permanently stained on but the autogylm engine cleaner is really good stuff, highly recommend!!
