When detailing the engine, is it ok to spray water from a garden hose right in there on the engine? Or is it better just to wipe down with a spray bottle?

Hey Alex,

How do you clean an engine compatment? I wanted to do it for the longest time, but I am a little worried to use the wrong stuff.

We use Simple Green and rags. And lots of elbow grease.

No I plan on stealing just the seats.
If I ever get around to swapping out my interior to a black one, I may have seats available.

Hey, thanks! I never heard of this thing. Google found it here: http://industrial.simplegreen.com/ What else would you say it is safe to clean with? You didn't clean the interior with it, did you?

Thanks for the tip.

My wife uses Simple Green a lot. I mean that's just about all she's bought for years. Works great on golf clubs too.
