How do you get the engine cover soooo shiny?

I was thinking of getting a little steam cleaner (like you see on the telly).

Knowing how dedicated K. is to the cause of his car I'm guessing he goes over the engine bay with a toothbrush, once a day. :p

Actually, I wish I had K.'s energy when it comes to the upkeep of my motor.

Good to see that you have reloaded your photos Koolvin.

The Gallery didn't feel or look the same without them mate.

Great Motor and a tribute to your dedication and skills.:bannana: :bannana:
