Re: Cleaning engine compartment, other detailing
^ I agree solvents and a paint brush. I often use a 50/50 petrol/paraffin mix
Where do you buy your Paraffin from? My Dad & me always used neat Paraffin for degreasing parts but since household paraffin heaters have been phased out I havn't seen any hardware shops or petrol stations selling any for many years now.
As a kid I use to walk 1/2 mile to the shops with an empty gallon can and get it refilled, and the shop had the pump in a room at the back of the shop. H&S and child safety wouldn't allow it now.
Don't take without giving in return
