Does the engine look clean? I hope so even though I wasn’t finished at this point. Typically you take off the body panels on scooters, of which I’ve had a few, and they are filthy. So my first, second and third rule with any project is clean, clean, clean. I actually enjoy it. Come on. Yeah, I do. It’s rewarding to sit back after a good scrub down and admire cleanliness whether you’re coming out of the shower or five feet back from a scoot in the driveway. The real key to all of it though is to have the right product. Which brings me to today’s sponsor: Permatex No Touch Tire Care. When your rubber needs to polished. Right, like I have a sponsor. While I’m supremely proud to know three or four of you read my blog which is why I continue and enjoy writing it, I’m far from any advertiser actually paying me to reach you, no offense. Yet I must promote, a tire cleaner is something I learned about watching a detailer on Youtube who cleaned an engine with the stuff. It’s really quite mild and a good grease cutter. I also have spray bottles of Simple Green, Purple Power and other stuff but this works really well and is foamy. So go out and buy yourself a can today and tell them Groosh sent you! And they’ll be like who the hell is Groosh? This dude held up in his garage writing about a 1980’s Honda Elite scooter. You mean the one with the pop up headlight? And then we’ll all be like: Hells Yeah, You Know It.
