Some carb cleaning. - April 17, 2013, 07:55 PM

With the fuel quality being so shitty my ultrasonic cleaners have been buzzing almost every day. The damn things come out so clean I want to hang them on the wall for show.

They sure look sweet. What kind of cleaning solution do you put in the ultrasonic cleaner? Straight up or diluted?

Works of art for sure. I'm digging the orange breather tubes you instal after cleaning them. Bright colors make you look fast

I was hoping mine would make the slide show. Redlevel does great work.

I buy it from a guy in Michigan in bulk. I keep red, orange, green, and blue in stock. What color and how much are you looking for?

Yep. $20 an injector with one day turn around time.
