Prep in wheel wells and engine bay
 
Two questions on the same basic topic.

I have pulled the engine from a 95 YJ and am in the process of stripping the body of its various parts (top hardware, roll bar padding, spare tire bracket, flares, etc...) I also plan to remove the windshiled, hood, tail gate, doors and related hinges (to replace with stainless).

Anyway, to my question(s).

What is the best way to clean up the fender wells and engine bay to prep for paint? I believe for the engine bay I need to degreese and then scuff (I have no rust issues (yay) - what are the best (easiest) products to get the job done? For the fenderwells I am really not sure. Still no rust issues, but lots of tar and other grime. Is there a way to clean these up with less elbow greese as opposed to more (I do not own a blaster)?

I plan on painting both areas with POR and then a top coat. Any thoughts will be appreicated.

Maybe buy a can or two of brake cleaner and see what that does. Maybe a plastic 2" paint scraper??
