Default What to Use?

What can I use to clean the top of the supercharger and the fuel rails that have been hidden under the engine cover for all these years? I've been running without it on for a while now and it looks horrible compared to some of the others on here. Thanks for any help.

Got pics?
I would start off with something mild like Simple Green or a citrus based cleaner.

Dont have any pics yet but it looks like oxidization on the rails and supercharger. It'* not dirty, it just has a buildup on it, if you know what I mean.

get yourself a dremel or drill with a buffer cloth on it.

I think you need more then that, I beleave you will need a fine wire wheel to get the oxidation off.
