Al I can say is WOW! The owner got back a new car. I can only imagine the amount of work that went into this Bentley. Can you explain a little about the product you used to wash down the engine compartment. I am preparing to detail my wife's Mustang GT. Generally I keep her car clean and detailed (exterior and interior) but have not done a thing to the engine compartment. Her Mustang is an 03 so all components are fairly well sealed, but my concern is with getting things too wet and causing some kind of electrical problem. What can you recommend?
