Try not to spray water on your ignition coils and alternator much.

Otherwise, Nice! I love a clean engine.

Yep. I'd remove the coils and let them air dry before you drive the car.

well, i don't have to work tomorrow so they should have plenty of time to dry off.

AND now that i know they are so sensitive i'll be sure to cover them up next time. but bealive me, they where DIRTY! i shoulda taken a before pic... my driveway was a mess after cleaning up under there! next time i attack with some plastic bags first, then water!
