Cleaning under the hood

The hideous hybrid - Honda Insight (2001)

After dedicating considerable time to meticulously cleaning the exterior of this Honda Insight, it dawned on me that I hadn't taken a proper look beneath the hood, aside jump starting it. I decided to open it up and quickly realized that this should have been my starting point all along.

I grabbed a rag and a vacuum, meticulously removing pine needles and debris, then proceeded to apply a thorough cleaning solution. With a bit of elbow grease, I diligently wiped down every surface.

It's truly remarkable how a modest amount of effort can significantly enhance the overall appearance of your vehicle.
