Default Engine detailing

Here's some detail work under the hood of an 04 Corolla. I sprayed the entire bay with a solution of Simple Green, hosed it down, engine dry, then used a 3:1 solution of Mothers Protectant and water respectively. On the painted areas, I used Carnauba Cleaner Wax. Very pleased with the results!

Very nice again. Did you just use simple green without agitation?

No agitation. I just let Simple Green set for a bit then I rinse it down with a garden hose. Fortunately dirt and oil easily washed off. It wasn't too bad to begin with as this car only has less than 30K miles on it. And when I say it wasn't too bad, I'm strictly speaking of conditions under the hood. This car's exterior was terrible.
