I painted the arms because i think it looks nice, i have seen it done on other cars. you can see it when someone is driving behind you! But i did it because they need to be changed because of the accident

Welcome!

My tip: Clean the engine bay! It's a lot easier to do it now than in a year or two when all that **** has hardened.

should i be worried about getting watter in something that shouldnt get wet?
Just try not to spray any wiring.

And also watch the area around the sparkplug wires and coil and whatnot.

Basically clean anything in the area of electrical stuff by hand, and spray away at stuff clear of electrical components.

Don't go nuts with it either way.
