Prep for POR-15

Got the tub off the frame, pressure washed the frame down in the dark tonight using hot water. Then I rolled the frame into the shop and ran it up the lift, still lots of small areas where there is some grease and grime. What should I use to clean it up in preparation for POR-15?

Probly be cheaper and definitely less time consuming than...
