    Did he just use 303aerospace cleaner or protector along with it, anything on it for the long haul. That's just crazy clean!! I know he upgraded to his new white taco which is just awesome looking as well.

    None. Up to now. Probably considering doing some light modifications to increase hp. No idea how to get there.
    Hi guys. My first time around (first post). I wonder if it would be advisable to cover the 'air flow meter' (whatever its name is), I also cover few other electrical connections (just wrap sections of plastic supermarket bags). Agree on covering the alternator definitely. One thing I do is apply the air blower to wipe off all the excess of water. I finally apply 6-56 CR (specially on the electrical contacts). Best

    Does Gunk cause any discoloration to the plastic parts or do you just use it on the engine block?

    he has thorough, i suggest you PM him if your really curious. Even my 2007 with all its frame rust and years of built up dirt and grime can be brought back to that quality if i were to spend enough time on it.
