cleaning engine compartment fuse panel?

Still working on my 8 and I want to spend some time cleaning up the electrical wires that are hanging and dangling under the dash. For some reason after I replaced the windshield frame assy the heater blower motor quit working so I am going to trace this down at the same time. Anyway my question is would it be ok to use electrical connector cleaner and a paint brush on the engine bay side of the fuse panel? Mine is covered in so much crud it is hard to tell what is what. I know unplug the battery.

I cleaned mine up using either. Disconect your light harness at the bulkhead so you can hold the contact side up and spray down blowing all the crud out. You may be better of using some kind of approved terminal cleaner. I used the either because for one it was on hand and two it cuts through grime and dries fast, worked for me.

I'd use a regular electronic contact cleaner. Be careful in using other solvents, because they may harm the plastic part of the panel. Also, after cleaning, blow out all the solvent and loose crud with compressed air.

thanks for the help. I get off of work in about an hour. I figure 3.5 hrs sleep and then it is beer/jeep 30. I think I'll try the electrical connection cleaner, I have it on hand.
