    Anyone use Trim Shine? I bought a case and really like it....I bought it to clean up a 2009 Camry engine bay. Sold the car to the first person to see it...I do my taco engine bay and am really happy with the way the engine bay still looks in a Massachusetts winter. Just makes it really easy to clean.

    I also use 303 with great results on my interior/exterior plastics, wheels, tonneau and etc.

    I'll try it out...

    How many things do I need to cover under the hood before I spray it down?

    I wanna clean my engine today

    I really don’t cover anything......I spray and wipe clean with any common detailing solution degreaser solution 5:1 and gently rinse/wipe....Leaf blow and wipe to dry........then trim shine the bay leaving the hood open for an hour or so.....I would avoid loading up belts or spraying into things like the alternator. If you go to YouTube there are many engine bay detailing vids using trim shine and engine bays. I have done this about 10 vehicles this past year with pretty good results.

    I am thinking of getting a refillable aerosol canister and do that......when people see it they want me to do their bay.

    That’s how you know I didn’t clean before posting...Last done in September, but no off-roading either...
