Detailing your engine is no larger a task than cleaning the rest of it. In fact, it’s one of the easier parts of a car to detail.
And, to be quite honest, would you wash yourself in the shower but leave one leg? No, of course you wouldn’t. If you’re going to put the effort in in the first place, do a decent job of it. Many owners don’t detail their engines because they’re scared of damaging something, but modern cars and their bays are generally pretty well protected.
The next thing to do is cover up anything that probably shouldn’t get wet. The air intakes, alternator, coil packs, Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) and any electricals should all be taped up. The best thing for this is cover with a plastic bag, and masking tape or elastic band it up.
Wipe up any excess after this curing time and that’s it! Your bay will be looking fresh, clean and protected.

Auto Finesse Dressle takes 4-6 hours to cure, for full protection.
Small amounts of water will not do damage to an engine bay, as it’s designed to resist any excess moisture.
We advise to clean and protect your engine bay at least twice a year. Naturally, that’ll be more frequent if you’re one for opening the bonnet at shows.
