Cleaned the Engine bay (Neon) WOW



all i can say is...wow..
i havent tried this degreased thing ever before.. and sorry i don't have any pictures of the engine before any cleaning was done...
i just have comparisons to show you guys...with certain parts cleaned and not cleaned..
i never thought a 95 neon engine could actually look like this....
it took me about 2 hours, so this is probably one of the cleaner neon engines you will see

1st pic: what it looks like before (remmber this cant really be cleaned with anything else like windex or water...(p.s. the stuff in the middle of the hood isnt dirt)
2nd pic: what it looks like after...
3rd pic: comparison between left side and right side of hood.
4th pic: dont have a before, but you can guess how it would look like usually..
5th pic: other things havent been cleaned in the pic, but look at the 2 on the left and the 2 uncleaned on the right.

1. actually the simple addon of that and (took out that little spoiler from there and put it at the bottom) looks much better than a stock neon...
2. wanna come clean it? its technically impossible to clean this engine the way you can keep clean/ or clean a bmw's engine bay.
So much stuff on this car you can't get your hands through...therefore it was left a bit dirty.
3. German bay > american will always look better .

dude, go to chrysler and ask for the engine sealant spray. It will turn everything glossy, and it dries solid, will make your car's engine look brand new! smells nice too.
(only seen chrysler have this)

^ i have NO CLUE. MY dad works there, so thats how i get my hands on it. Did you use a powerwasher? Try it with a powerwasher if not, as the pressure will get all the little scummies.

P.S. you know you have the right stuff if it smells like bubblegum. Thats how the chrysler sealer smells like LOL.
