well not quite like yours. Your car gets the spa treatment, mine got the Dan'* Detailing $35 dollar special.

But I'm very pleased. Next is one more 4-stage wax, then full interior cleaning

Yeah i didn't think it would take long for that thing to get cleaned up after seeing Pete'* engine.. Those pix gave me enough motivation on their own just from his Siggie!

Edit: Here'* my shot for vanity'* sake And also what i think of your engine!

Looks excellent 89SE!
Looks like an excellent way to spend $35.
I've never heard of any detail shop doing engine cleaning I must ask around here.

Do it yourself, get some brushes, a nylon, brass, and steel set, and some elbow grease and save the big money you'd spend! Check out my pic i edited in. Cleaning my own engine gives me pride too!
