Default The Engine Bay Thread

Clean, dirty, shaved and tucked, it doesn't matter. Lets see those bad boys. I did a quick search and didn't find one but sorry if there's already a thread for this.

Here's my 97 Legacy L.

Wet it with water and soak it in simple green. Let it soak for half an hour while you keep adding some to keep it wet. Get the really dirty stuff off with a tooth brush and rinse the whole bay off. I clean the painted stuff with an instant detailer and wipe the rubber hoses with a tire cleaner. The picture of my bay is how it looks all the time, I didn't clean it for week or so.
