I think we raised the bar on daily driver's engine bay. If a 9 year old engine bay can look this good, Then the Mustang DD's should look this good or better IMO. . Pressures on

If I get over my stupid cold, I'll give it a shot on my 2000 Tacoma tomorrow.

Stay tuned for Before & After pics.

Here's my method:

1. On a cold engine spray completely with 409 cleaner. Use a nylon brush to release grease and
dirt.

2. Take 4 oz baking soda mixed with 1 quart hot tap water. Use this solution to neutralize the
battery acid residue on the terminals and upper surface of the battery.
Let cleanser and baking soda solution stand for 5 min's.

3. Prep a hose and spray attachment. START engine, immediately rinse off cleanser and dirt. Avoid
spraying excessive water on the electrical wiring, alternator and fuse box.

4. After rinse and with the engine still running use an air hose and attachment and blow dry any
remaining moisture. Run engine until the engine components are visibly dry.

5. Turn off motor and use Adams Undercarriage spray and whip all surfaces in the engine bay.

6. Finish up using Adams In & Out spray.

7. Step back in Awe!

Jed

Cool. So you are sure you don't want it measured in cell phone plus fingers?

Let me get my tape and I'll take a peek.

How's this for a measuring technique?



Couldn't resist...

I'm lazy; I cheat. I rinse off with the Mr. Clean filtered water crap and only wipe the polished surfaces.

OK it's actually a little more complicated than I thought it would be. On the CS front there is the center section which is the unpainted black plastic. At the front leading edge it is 6.25" but underneath its at 5.75". Then on either side of this center section there is a painted section that is lower and you can kind of see this in pictures. At this point on either side at the leading edge its 6" off the ground but up underneath it is 5.25".

So you can clear anything less than a 5.25" curb with a CS front bumper and FRPP springs.

good advice on keeping the engine running jed, some people say to wipe down the hoses, i dont, because when they start getting hot, the tire dressing or whatever you put on them burn off...doesnt smell too good...

I'll add a pic of my 99 Grand Cherokee engine, not the cleanest, but for 135k miles, and sitting outside all the time, all weather driven...
car itself doesnt look too bad when clean
