    Glad to be a part of the disorder. I ALWAYS wipe down the underside of the hood, engine bay, and trunk lid (including the track under it). Too much?

    Me, too. Definitely not too much.

    In my case, the OCD is because I daily drive, including in winter, in Cleveland. Road salt gets everywhere. Eastwood salt neutralizer is my best friend. In fact, even though the last salt blast was a couple of weeks ago, I'm going to spray some more neutralizer on the suspension just in case of salt dust from the dry roads.

    Nah, if you really had OCD you definitely wouldn't be driving it in the winter.

    Haha, well...I didn't buy the car to look at it! I already have one of those, one that I look at more than drive. My V is like a toy I can't put down. Because of that, salt neutralizer every time it goes out in the snow.

    does anybody have any links to engine bay dress up pieces or other examples of modified "acoustic covers" and stuff like that under the hood. I saw one picture of a painted intercooler cover with some carbon fiber that looked cool. thanks.

    Take it away or keep it clean and shine.
