    Seriously my Gen1 engine bay needs to sparkle

    Any hope for that to happen?

    What parts do I need to insulate and protect if I were to spray the damn thing?
    And what do you guys recommend to get most of the bay components to shine and look new?

    Thanks

    When I did my engine bay detailing I didn’t do the full wash.
    My Viper is a daily driver so detailing was done accordingly.
    Intake rails, valve covers letters, a/c dryer tank and front brace can be polished (chrome like) by hand with regular polishing compound.
    Everything else was cleaned up with regular degreaser and some elbow grease. After that I use any plastic dressing.
    Now, a couple of time a summer, I just wipe everything with a detailer damped rag.
    Re-polish the chrome once or twice a summer and voila...
    Does the job for me.
    By the way, car has 92000km and is not driven in rain

    I use Chemical Guys Barebones on anything black. It smells like grapes too so that's a two-fer.
