Default HOW TO CLEAN? HELP

Man I took my hellfire out for an All Out SmackDown, Now Its so dirty I tried the Team Associated Cleaner and No such luck. I dont want to take it a part but if I must I will. If any of you have some Cleaning tips and helpfull products I am Listening. I am tempted to buy some Carb Cleaner I know that will do it but I dont know if it will attack my plastic parts.

Air compressor w/ a siphon feed tube for denatured alcohol. It works best if you don't allow the mud to cake on and dry, but if it does simply use more. For economics try to blow off most of the stuff w/ just air as denatured alcohol can get costly at $12 per gallon. If you've got a compressor you don't have to be afraid of using water, just make sure to blow it dry and then spray down your entire vehicle w/ WD40 and then hit that w/ air as the final step. It takes time to get it clean but you can make it look like new w/ some effort and elbow grease.
