Default Detailing the engine for the car show

Seeing as I have a car show next weekend I figured I better get started detailing. But with the roads all ripped up I can't keep anything clean. So I cleaned up the engine bay a bit today. One less thing to deal with next weekend.

If you have a extra bolt that would be great. I just never got around to getting a new one. I hod totally forgot about that until you mentioned it.
