Great results with proper application

I've used many products over the years as an engine dressing and I have to say this is one of my favorites when applied correctly. I think the directions on the can leave out some necessary steps to avoid dust/gunk build up from over application, and a proper looking clean and Satin look. For engine dressings in the past I have used ; CDI Engine Detailer, Optimum Opti-bond gel applied with an air gun, Ultima Trim and tire shine, Chemical guys Barebones, Carpro Pearl, and I'm sure others I'm forgetting. I first clean the engine bay, once it's cooled down, by spraying an all purpose degreaser ( Optimum Power Clean 3:1) all over and scrubbing any build up areas. Then rinse with the hose on the shower spray pattern, making sure not to directly spray into electrical connectors and components. Then I use a leaf blower to dry and blow all the water out the areas it pools up. With it still semi wet I lightly mist the entire bay with the can a out 2-3ft away. At this point it will look wet and greasy. Let that dwell for about 10 minutes then come back with a microfiber or paper towels and wipe the excess off . Really I wipe down everything that I can. This is key to avoid excess product that will attract and hold dust. It will still be really wet looking at this point, but no pooling of the detailer should remain. After a few heat cycles it will even out and you will have a 'like new' Satin sheen on all plastics/covers and a slight gloss on metal parts. Looks like a cars engine bay with 0 miles on it when done this way. Not a slick, sloppy wet and greasy engine bay like you see on used car lots. Future cleanings area easy as it does seem to create a barrier for the dust/grime to slide right off. I noticed on the ingredients it has D-Limonene, which is a citrus derived cleaner(among other uses) , and gives the detailer its scent, which I find to be the only con of the product. Think citrus mixed with motor oil as the scent to describe this product. However it does go away after a few drives. Will purchase again! See photo for my engine bay a week after application.

Seems to work good as a rejuvenator on a weathered vinyl spa cover

Tried pretty much all of the fancy vinyl shine Armour All type things and also the higher tech UV protectants like 303. This stuff makes it look as good as those others initially but also seems to outlast the others in the blazing direct sunshine. I would avoid getting it in your spa water and take the cover completely off and away from the spa to apply it. I also of used it as a detergent. Don’t know if it helped maintain the shine or if I just wasted product where dish soap would have sufficed. Anyway here is what I did: Sprayed it on the dry totally filthy cover, let it soak in 5 minutes, pressure washed it clean, let the cover completely dry again, and then reapplied a very light application where needed for a even shine. Interesting that it lasts so well. Your results may vary!

It tried this and it is equal or better. Used the Gunk name on their engine brite ...

I have used CD2 Engine Detailer for many years buying by the case. But they have discontinued it. It tried this and it is equal or better. Used the Gunk name on their engine brite for years to maintain a clean engine compartment for years but this is the final touch. After 3 months the engine still looks new.....A great product I also find it useful for the black trim as a restorer, but test it on a small area before proceeding. It works as good as some of the other trim restorers out there
