    the best thing you could do, but a huge pain in the ass, is to remove everything and repaint the bay...

    the next best thing would be to get it all cleaned up and then reclear the bay to get it back to the original shine...

    the last choice would be just to clean it using degreaser or simple green...

    not really advising this but if you're really lazy you can clear over everything thats in the bay with the motor out... it'll all shine
