    Anyone have any ideas as to how to take care of the engine parts that are aluminum and showing signs of oxidation? I thought I heard of a spray on rinse off that got rid of most of it. Is anyone out there detailing the engine, belt tension pulley, throttle body, and many other parts are not coated, get wet and begin the process. Any suggestion are welcomed.

    Thanks

    If you want to cheat and get it looking pretty good fast. Take an old micro fiber rag put some 100% silicon spray on it and wipe all the alu parts down and take another micro fiber rag and wipe it dry.

    toss the old rags out when you are done. you can make it look like brand new in 10 minutes.

    don't get any on or near your belts. It won't hurt plastic or other areas but I would try not to get any on the painted surfaces, thats why I apply the spray to the rag not the part.
