    Muddy weekend

    Went off roading this whole past weekend and can't help but realized I've caked the engine bay up with dirt. Best way to get it clean again?

    It sure is fun getting it that dirty but the cleaning afterwards sucks balls! A pressure washer will be your friend!

    I'd avoid spraying directly on or near the fuse box and air box. Everything else should be ok. Dealerships do this all the time with new vehicles when they detail trade-ins.
    Just use good judgement. If it looks like spraying water in a particular area isnt a good idea avoid it. It'll eventually get cleaned off if you drive in rainstorms too.....
