    Oven cleaner? Works great on most icky parts. Did it heat enough to wrinkle the paint?
     
  3. Simple Green if it is not too bad. Hope it was a minor fire.

    Ugh... That sucks. I had to take apart lots of burnt engines. Prying and scraping the plastic and rubber bits off is such a pain. At least it's a real car and doesn't have a bunch of plastic covers and shit over the engine to melt down.

    Again, at least you came out unscathed!

  7. Second that. TSP works good.
