My trick for keeping things clean is to soak everything w/ a can of silicone in the fall. This helps keep the salt from ruining the metal and everything else. Come spring I wipe down w/ Armor All. I think the silicone helps keep the rubber and plastic pliable overtime.
A clean car is a happy car!!
EagleESI, I like your red valve cover breather collars. How do they thread on to the existing nipples?
Mine leak a little oil so I put a hose clamp on one of them but it looks dumb. Can you get those at Advance Auto or similar store?
