    Cleaning/treating question

    Hi everyone,
    I've got an s14a and was wondering how and what to use to clean up the plenum, it starting to look dirty and oil mark on it from where I dropped bits of oil from oil filter changes etc.
    Any tips to make it look cleaner with it in situ?
    Thanks
    Marco

    When mine was kicking about the back room (while the SR was on holiday out the car) i sprayed it silver again with a tin from halfrauds.

    Looks nice and clean for the moment.

    Er that doesnt really help you in situ though

    Thanks for the reply sideways but yeh doesn't really help as I haven't really got time at the moment to take it off the engine, if I did I would prob get it professionally polished so it's nice and shiney.

    Mr Muscle oven cleaner might be worth a shot. It works on alloys to get the baked on brake dust off.
