nice writeup i would like to add another product for engine bay cleaning... it is called industrial purple sold at home depot. I have used this on my Jeep cherokee's engine bay (which is caked with mud and grease from offroading and the inevitable 4.0L valve cover leak) all I had to do with this product was spray, wait, and rinse. when all was said and done after 2 coats I could eat off my engine with no scrubbing involved.

can you use regular household carpet cleaners to do the car carpets as well? do they have attachments you can rent?
