Detailed: 2 300ZX Engine Bays

Detailed these two engine bays tonight. Started at 5:30 and finished at around 8:30. Not to bad, this was just strictly engine bay and no exterior. I think they turned out really well. Definitely better than before. Red one was a TT so it was a pain in the ass working on it. Super tight and the engine was still really hot. Black one had these little white specs that were a pain to take out.


Products Used:
-Majestic Solution Super Green Stuff
-Finish Kare 108 Poly Protectant
-Isopropyl Alcohol
-Costco MFs
-Meguiars Brush
-Michael's Brush
-Microfiber Applicator Pad

Before:







Afters:

White pain in the ass specs!


Glue residue, did the best I could. Soaked it in APC and tried soaking it Isopropyl Alcohol...I only got a bit off



Cleaned but no protectant

After FK108










I did the best I could with both engine bays, the red one was extremely hard to get at. But I think both came out noticeably well. Let me know what you think and thanks for looking!

yeah I left it out because I got my username changed to BrendanS on every forum but one detailing forum I'm always on. So when I post it'd be like xfactor78 detailed and BrendanS detailed. So I'm just leaving it out. Thanks though

Ill send you a pm in a bit. But no I didn't take any course. I don't mean to sound cocky but I don't believe there's anything I can learn at vcc that I can't over the internet. I'd rather take a business course where I can learn to manage and run a business properly. Thanks though

yeah the exterior of the black one was in terrible condition, interior wasn't any better. Theres a chance I would have turned it down if he wanted a full exterior interior detail. It's almost not worth it.
