Cleaning Engine and Vert Top

I was wondering what you convertible guys use to keep your top looking great and in good condition.

Also, my engine compartment is a little dusty, what methods/products do you guys use to clean this area?

A lot of people clean there engine different way but here is how I clean mine. I mix up a cup with 50/50 mix of car wash soap and water. Use a small clean paint brush (1" or 1 1/2") to brush the soap/water mix on your motor. Stay away from the parts you don't want to get wet. After your motor is soaped up turn your water hose on to a slow small controled stream of water and rinse the soap off. Again, stay away from the parts you don't want to get wet. Before the water dries and leaves spots use a aircompressor to blow your motor dry. After that just detail the parts you want and your motor is ready for the show.

there is a product out there by 303 for cleaning, and protecting convertible tops. I have also used a 50/50 woolite/water mixture. The 303 stuff can be found at Summit Racing. I bought mine at a local RV dealer. If there is one close to you, check them. A lot of RV owners use the 303 on their awnings.

You can also use Raggtopp for cleaning and maintaining the top, just do a search online and you can find it many places.

I use the blue shop towels and a couple small detailing brushes on the motor. Clean off most of the dirt and dust then use Finish2001 to keep it looking shiny and purdy.

I always loved to play Dig Dug. I have it on a video game but when it first came out I was a digdug king. Could run it over a million...

for engine bay...I spray everything with full strength Purple Power...and let it soak for a few mins, then spray it out with a hose, and then looks all clean and pretty. I've never had any problems with it before. Does anybody have a better method?
