Default Engine gloss

I sprayed something on my engine and it shined for months! I know it had to be diluted with water. Any ideas? Or what do you guys use for the showroom shine.

You could use any type of exterior trim spray. My personal favorite is Stoners.

Here's a nice video showing how to do your engine compartment

I don't know about everyone else, but Ashley makes it really hard for me to concentration on the washing process.
