Love the GT, one of my favorite cars. I would really like to see one go through a full nut and bolt restoration, but your mini build was entertaining to watch.
Not at all? Expected some reasons after that statement.

Since when does water and wiring mix and match? I wouldn’t even do it with a weak stream of water, let alone a pressure washer from <1m distance.

Some wrap all connectors in plastic. Didn’t see that here.

You’re wrong and naive to detailing. Not much else to say that countless similar processes haven’t said already... including this one.

Ok I see. You’re right and I’m wrong. And I know nothing about detailing.

I keep forgetting you’re the PhD in every single subject and I’m at none.

Guess my car cleans itself then.

In other words, you’re always make assumptions on based on nothing. When I ask you about it, you have zero valid arguments, which always leads to some excuse why you shouldn’t need to mention any.

Like some random statement like me nothing nothing about detailing. Really.

Luckely Brat, when 2 agree and he doesn’t, always single me out for quoting replies.

It wouldn’t be so funny if it wasn’t anything short of hilarious.

Everything is sealed to keep out air and moisture. It's fine to get the engine bay wet, just don't soak it by holding the nozzle in one place too long.

The /// stripes on the rear seats were not not same width & angle left to right, used alcantara instead of amaretta (different shade and nap), the wheels have a diamond cut finish (like replicas), oil cooler duct wasn't deburred when it was notched for the splitter uprights, the lip/diffuser were painted instead of replaced. Little things..

For some odd reason the car does not have the factory X-brace or 2pc floating rotors either.

You can go to town on most everything without too much concern. Just keep water out of the spark plug holes and dry everything.

The brakes were an odd one I thought too. Seemed like certain areas were hard to spend the right money on... areas that aren’t that expensive. Maybe that will come later?

What's the point? You're wrong and when people constantly prove such you spend years arguing with them. For example; It's been 10 years since you were told 1996 have unique kidneys to this year only. I've still yet to see you comprehend this. I'm tired of wasting my time explaining things in depth to you.

awesome resto thread.

agreed about power washing the bay, the wiring connectors are waterproof and sealed. unless you directly spray into a sensor at point blank you won't harm anything. Theres a reason every connector in the engine bay is weatherproofed

I currently have 6 cars. I powerwash at least one engine what seems like every other week. Been doing it for years, so that's 20-25 powerwashes a year, so I literally done it hundreds of times. Only once I had a problem with a sensor that cleared on its own when it dried. Nothing to worry about at all.
