Detailed Engine Bay Guide

You'll still be able to do the visible bits of the clutch through the grill hole and i know people paint the servos and you can buy chrome cover for the reservoir which looks good. I guess you'll just have to allow extra time for doing your engine...

Do u have more pictures during the cleaning process? Can you share to us?

The only pics i have were when i first bought my car. Originally the block was very oily and grimey so one of the first few things i did was give it a quick wash with some gunk - Just like i've explained in this guide.
As you can see the blocks really oily
Like i said all i did was degrease the block with some gunk cleaner - At that time i hadn't done anymore cleaning apart from that.
