Last week at the Ohio gathering, I was embarrassed when I opened the hood and those pesty water spots were all over the place. Clean everything up today with dilution of CLR and water. Cleaned everything off with acetone and now I'm going to put Mother's Billet Metal polish. Question to you. How many times do you wash and clean your microfiber towels and application pads?

I buy the small 12x12 from Harbor Freight when they go on sale and use them for dirty work like Mothers and toss then when I am done with them. I also do the same if using them for putting on wax. I don't think you can get the wax or mother's out of them so easier to toss and use new.

It gives me a headache just thinking about the effort to clean under that hood!!!!! I am like @Stlhotrod , when a microfiber towel becomes dirty or saturated I put it in the rag bag to be used as a shop cloth wiping up grease, under truck/car and so on.

Great looking engine compartment. Thx for sharing. Where did you get that air intake and the chrome plates??

Hey, SWT RYD it's been a few months, but I finally got my cold air intake on. It is very hard when you can only stand for about 60 min. at a time, and my left hand does not do what I want it to do. All because of a stroke I had a few years ago. I finished up today, thanks for the information on it.

Thank You,
Mike
