Tip number 1....... Don't do it

Direction number 1 ......don't do it!

I would use a degreaser and a paint brush go over the areas that are visible and you want to Make look nice then seal it with some silicon sealer it's a long tedious job of brush on and wipe off nothing more
Hope this helps and good luck!

I think in some respects its better than using degreaser ....as alot of degreasers eat the gaskets/ sealent .... tips with a steam cleaner .... dont spray it directly onto electrics or conecters thats it  Wink

I use a traffic film remover as I don't believe it damages gaskets etc but make sure not to leave it on paintwork for too long. If using a small brush, wash dirty area down with hot water to help remove the grime etc

you will know pete but for others make sure if using tfr more so if neat it will discolour plastics and any stickers like the factory ones on a engine bay will be no more if using tfr or a steam cleaner to close
