I hear this stuff is good I need to buy some..

The CD-2 Engine Detailer is a revolutionary, resin formula that cleans, shines, and protects all under-the-hood parts & surfaces in one easy step. Just spray it on and walk away. No rinsing. No mess. CD-2 Engine Detailer leaves plastic and rubber engine parts with a rich black luster and a lasting protective coating which guards against drying and cracking. CD-2 Engine Detailer also helps protect painted metal surfaces from rust and corrosion.
It is available in a 12.5 oz aerosol can.

Just use some tire shine right after you use some quick detailer and start scrubbing.
