CD2 Engine Detailer back on the shelves at AutoZone!!!
 
I heard a rumor from someone that AutoZone was carrying my favorite engine detailing product again, so I stopped by and checked it out. THE RUMOR IS TRUE!!!! $4.99 a can and they have it in cases. I bought everything they had on the shelf (only six cans, so not that many) and I'll probably clear them out every time I go in. That stuff is liquid gold. I can get at least three or four engines out of a can and I charge $60 per engine. You do the math... The stuff is absolutely incredible and you have to try it. I don't know anyone who has been able to come up with something that matches what CD2 Engine Detailer can do. www.OCDetails.com has pictures of what this product can do on the Photos page. I'll get a better review written up and posted here soon. Definitely check out your local AutoZone and pick some up. The cheapest I have ever seen it online is about eight bucks a can and you still have to pay shipping. Believe me that it is worth it!!

Is this stuff a cleaner also? Or just something to create some shine in an already clean engine compartment?

OCDetails 02-02-2008 08:00 PM

It's sort of a cleaner. If your engine is just dusty and not really in need of a degreasing then it will work fine.

Here is an engine that was stricktly a CD2 job. Before and after including an ultra glossy engine cover picture. The stuff is amazing...

ohhhh I'll have to stop by tomorrow and buy it all up at my local autozone depending on if they have it or not...

It is in a silver looking can with a black cap. Look it up on Amazon and they have pictures of what it looks like. They have it on sale for $54 bucks a case on Amazon. Considering it is only $5 bucks a can and there are six cans in a case, I'd say buying it locally is going to save me a ton of money. I've got four cases on order with my local AutoZone so that I don't have to worry about running out again. I only go through seven cans a year, so five cases total in my garage should last me for awhile. Maybe someone will come up with something that compares with it before I run out. Somehow I doubt it, but the fact that AutoZone brought it back after four years of not having it at all says something about the demand for it.

As it should. ;) I've got some more from when we tested out the polymer booster stuff. Photobucket seems to be down at the moment, but as soon as it comes back up I'll have to post those. We got good before/afters with all the covers on. Dang that car looked good when we got done with it...

OCDetails 02-05-2008 03:19 PM

Of course it comes back up as soon as I say it is down. lol Anyway, here are the engine shots and one that I just have to post because it is so mind boggling beautiful...

It doesn't have to be that glossy either. You can buff it down to a nice matte finish if that is more your style. I always leave it on wet and glossy on hoses, but for covers I usually wipe it down so it looks more like this.

man I love the JDM cover's.... looks so clean with them.

OCDetails 02-05-2008 06:25 PM

Yup. That was probably my favorite thing I ever bought for the car. I liked those more than the HIDs. lol

MiniStiGuy 02-05-2008 10:08 PM

well I have a Retro so I like my retro more ... :lol: but I know what you mean.

looks greasy to touch..... Is it a clean shine or is it greasy to touch? Looks like tire shine on it kinda. Looks amazing and if it comes out dry and has that shine then I'm in for many cans of that stuff
