chemical guys grime reaper you can dilute it. You get gallons of the stuff when you do that. Personally I wouldn’t clean your engine bay all the time. I do mine maybe twice a year then I just wipe it down every time I wash the car. I feel as though it will corrode faster the more you use a solvent.

I don't believe so. We don't ship any aerosol containers internationally or via express shipments that travel via air. You'll probably be asking for a delay in an airport with aerosol containers or have to fill out a ton of paper work to clear it or something (just speculating).

Hope that helps,

George
