Place an inflateable childrens swimming pool under the vehicle, Get one large enough that the front wheels will be within the pool and then inflate it. Use detergent based cleaners (simple green and others) and not too much water to loosen the big stuff. Scrape, brush and rinse the big stuff. When you reach a point of diminishing returns allow the water to evaporate and deflate and roll up and bag the pool and take ti to a commercial recycler. For the remaining mess, trailer, tow or drive the vehicle to a car wash that has engine cleaning options (they meet water treatment standards) and finish up.I'm in the middle of removing the ICE from the donor car. I'd like suggestions on the best or a good way to clean the engine area. Here are my considerations:
1) This is in my garage. I'd like to avoid creating a toxic waste dump. It's ironic to pollute while going green.
2) I see this as possibly a 2 stage cleaning. One is just enough to see the ICE better. The second is to clean the compartment area after removing the ICE.
3) The engine was running and I'd like to sell it (reuse). So I'd like the cleaning not to damage the engine.
Another alternative is a commercial stripping and cleaning company.
I did this a (long) while ago to keep a driveway clean. It should also work to help keep the enviornment clean.
