    Default Snow foaming the engine bay?

    Has anybody tried this?

    Ive seen it on another forum where just the battery is covered with a plastic bag to keep it dry, then foam away and jet wash off on a low pressure - apparently the results are very good.

    Has anybody tried this on here?? Any pics??

    Well my engine bay was "clean" in the first place, just giving it a going over after the winter. Was defiantly an improvment though. No issues as I didnt take the spark plug engine cover thingy off.
