Nice and purdy! A clean engine bay makes all the difference in the world for both looks and the prevention of certain maintenance issues.

As soon as you do something to your wife'* car anything that happens there in after will inherently be your fault. Best not to touch that one.

Nice job.

I usually use Amazing Roll Off and microfiber gloves. Be sure to wear thin latex gloves under the microfiber gloves. The gloves allow you to clean the bottoms of hoses and such.

I couldn't agree more! Everytime I touch my wifes Blazer, something always happens afterward and she blames me for it.
