Detailed My Engine!!!

Just did a complete engine bay detail and took a couple photos. Does this look like an engine with 36,000 miles on it?

Looking good! Mind if I ask what kind of plastics dressing you use? Or what products you used to clean your engine? I've been using 303 Aerospace, and it's been great so far. I do a quick wipe down with this every time i wash my car and everything stays clean. Haven't had to do a steam clean/power wash yet (or even a rinse).

Black Magic - Tire Wet. It's real thick, so a little goes a long way.
I did not need to power wash or anything, since I wipe it down periodically. This time though I hit every crevice. Took about an hour.

No serious lookers yet. Hoping for the heat to end, so the convertible buyers start looking. In the meantime I am contemplating eating breakfast on the manifold tomorrow morning.
