Na didn't cover anything I used that heavy duty degreaser dont take big plans I just do everything da way I wana even tho it dont turn out the way I planned it to be whats gona happen that I did that............It studdered around a bit after the hose washdown got some water up in the intake and such pretty much the whole engine douced in water and engine degeaser i used some engine bright or something like that that I bought at wal-mart for like 88 cents. I re-washed the engine after the ajax incident dont car much junk-yards are full of cars like this and plenty of parts for it and I know people they hook it up cheap with pretty much whatever I want.........my friend says I will probally have to replace the wires in like a week bleh..........BTW wow those chrome parts make the engine look phat I never knew the chrome parts where there untill I scrubbed the junk off of em and if the car breaks down I got a 1978 yardman moped for a back-up and worse worse I got the pontiac 6000
