    Hey guys, just bought a new to me 07 taco, and when i was giving it its first bath and cleanin under the hood, i noticed it was VERY dirty and there seemed to be quite a bit of parts and places with rust (worse than my 2000 was even) and I was just wondering what some good products were to get it cleaned up really good under the hood, plus anything that would be good for the rust as well, i can try to get some pics tomorrow if that'd help. Thanks in advance :)

    No man I haven't taken any, its not too bad but like I said not as good as id like for it to be, ive been cleaning under the hood the last few times i've washed the truck and its definitely starting to look better, but there are just a few parts that I wouldn't think would be rusted yet on an 07. and yeah man the salt and stuff is horrible around here, especially this past year, it was terrible! im from shady spring right near beckley, what about you bro?
