Can you tell me what would be an example of a "water based dressing"? I'd appreciate a P.M. if it's something that can't be shared publicly, thanks.turbomangt said:The secret in engine detailing is to use a water based dressing to seal the plastic and rubber after degreasing. The owner was amazed when he picked up this car.

If there is a tough greasy spot, I'll use simple green or Foamy Engine Brite. In the last 3 years, I sold a '93 Jeep with 125,000 miles on it and a 99 Silverado with over 120,000. I did this at least every three months, and it never, ever, caused a problem, and the engines looked great and added resale value. I'll do the same with my Solstice.
