Thumbs up Summer Underhood Clean & Paint

Perfect temps this morning to do the needed clean up after UIM/LIM install!
Power washed everything again and some paint work for rust touch Up'*.
Do you guys also do the summer rust touch ups as well?
This time the LPS got used again but I added hand cloth/ Armorall for the plastic trims ...

Darn it is hard in winter to keep Salt off...This surface rust needed attention !

The Brake Booster was next...It was getting rust spots all over..

Final outcome I can be proud of ! Pk Ave runs and looks great!

Now time for a few cool ones..

I'm beginning to understand the rule that, if its left untouched, nothing breaks, if I touch it, it breaks.

You can come over and do mine next!

Looks good Art, what paint did you use?
I ask because I only see de-greaser, and the ArmorAll.

I'd love to do mine, I just don't have the money, fixing things to get my car inspected has come first.

Hard to say, really dont keep a watch on when starting projects.
Couple of hours+ for sure though with the paint work.
