    Super Degreaser to remove grime and grease; Hyper Dressing to make everything look pretty! Works all the time for me!

    I was nervous at 1st when doing my own. But it's not that bad. I like to wrap the electrical components with aluminum foil and have had great luck doing it this way.

    1. Mist with water to remove loose dirt (not focusing with a stream in 1 certain spot)
    2. Spray down with an APC
    3. Agitate with a brush
    4. Rinse (not focusing with a stream in 1 certain spot)
    5. Blow dry with compressor
    6. Dress engine
    7. Shut hood and start engine for 5 minutes
    8. Wipe off excess

    Good luck let us know your approach
    I use these same steps but use a degreaser instead of APC. I want reiterate do not use a heavy stream of water. The above steps always give me good results and smiles on my customers face.
