Should i even attempt this lol, my engine bay is quite mucky mainly just dust & grime, recently i have contemplated painting my cam covers, intake etc.. white. but before i do i want the surrounding area clean, how should i do this?

i would just head for covering the main electrics with carrier bags and the jetting off with the car running ?

In a word, no!

Do it the hard way, get in there with your toothbrush and scrub that baby out. One of those hand held steam cleaners can be helpfull if used correctly ;)

gettin it steam cleaned shouldnt be a problem, as long as its steam cleaned not jet washed you should be fine

steam cleaning if done sensibly is ok ...just unplug or cover anything you dont want wet. .....and park it somewhere where the big oily puddle underneather isnt going to anoy the neighbours .....

I agree with hesh, just be careful of any soft rubber parts that aren't fit for hot water as well like electrical covers etc. Steam will make them perish quicker.
