Yes I have and regretted it. It will make your engine shiny for a week, then the dirt will start to cake on everything and be very hard to remove.

Edited to add: Of course I'm talking about the one that comes in the big aerosol can.

I haven't used it, but will tell you that it's like flypaper for road dust, and yes once it's dirty again, it will be hard to clean (as stated by cryus88).

Best thing for quick clean up appearance is aerosol silicone spray can, but be sure not to spray area by your rubber accessory drive belts. It doesn't take much for painted items to look brighter, great for rubber hoses, and doesn't hold dirt like other engine shine products. When you want to redo it, just wipe surfaces off with cotton rag, then re-spray zones. The stuff is great for all your weather seals as well.

This may sound crazy, I used Mothers Foaming Tire and wheel Cleaner on the engine then hosed it off.
Worked pretty well, but did nothing for the exposed aluminum on the top of manifold and rocker covers.
They have a mottled blackish appearance.
Headed to Home Depot for some aluminum metal polish and silicon spray.

The best engine detailer there is on the market is Adams In and Out Spray.

This stuff I found out about on a Corvette web site and found it locally here. It is great for plastic, rubber and even painted surfaces under the hood. It is not a cleaner but it is a dealer. I clean and then finish it with this. It is an Aerosol is the only negative but the over spray just wipes off with no streaking or other issue. I just tuned a buddy onto it and he just went back to buy 3 more cans.

The VOC law killed the product for two years and the Corvette guys were just going crazy.

Note the video really does not show the true results of the spray. Note too it does not collect dust like Amour all and other sprays will. I have used them all and this is one thing that really shocked and impressed me. I highly recommend it.

Thanks for posting this, I've never seen that product in the stores I normally go into. I only have one concern, in that he advices not to spray on plastic instrument panel clear cover. That does not go well with it being safe for plastic products, which there are a ton of on today's cars. I wish he had gone into more detail, why to stay clear of that area, because if it's harmful to that part, it's certainly harmful to just about all other plastic parts.

It goes without saying that you want to always test a product before you go all guns and spray it down on everything.

Keep in mind this is a rubber and plastic trim product. Clear plastics and Plexi glass generally need different care. They work best with a polishing compound vs. some top coat.

Black Magic ?

Wife uses it all the time when she calls speedy her broom to go flying around.

Wait that's not the kind of black magic you are talking about.

Hey it was a bump to the top when I posted, so

Besides we are all way to straight laced and no fun here in tech, a little laughing once in a while never hurt anyone, besides, my wife is Fierowitch here on the forum.
