Well it wont be long before the frosts are here so time to stock up on a few winter bits for those of us that use our cars through the winter months .or any new 911 owners .

1 On the list is Gummi Pflege , as quick run round your door rubbers with this will stop them sticking to the glass in the frost making it difficult to open the doors

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nextzett-Gummi-Pflege-Flege-Car-Rubber-Stick-Door-Restorer-100ml-/162516660510?epid=1005414647&hash=item25d6bf711e:g:ar4AAOSw32lYwD4A

2 ACF50 this is applied to the underside of the car to protect it, its the 2017 version of wax oil and far less messy.

epid=596160496&hash=item4d53f2ff69:g:fxwAAOSwdGFYrS07

3 new set of wipers my personal preference is PIAA SUPER SPORZA SILCONE WIPERS I like them as they have a small wing on to help push against the glass I go for a 20" and a 21" and some gentle bending to keep the offside one off the scuttle and touching the glass as the end.

4 worth getting your battery tested to ensure its holding a good charge.

5 check plenty of tread on the all year tyres or change to winters .

I am sure other will have some other ideas but those are my must do's before the cold dark nights set in . and Sept ,Oct is the best time to prep the car for winter. Thumb

I am sure they are probably similar but I went with ACF50 as that's the bikers choice and if it works on their bikes it's good enough for me Thumb

ACF50 is great stuff. Once a year my bike gets a full coating, and i did the underside of my car a week ago!

Good post Phil, will invest in some lubricant to aid my rubbers hehe Floor

Ive got the 50, but how do you guys apply it, do you just spray it everywhere underneath the car / inner arches etc... Question

I just spray it anywhere except on anything that gets very hot or where friction is involved, brake discs, belts etc. I use it all year round anyway as it makes cleaning places like the engine bay, battery compartment much easier!

Never heard of the ACF50 stuff, looks good!

Is it really as good as waxoil though? Really? I mean does it last for months/years and protect against the harshest weather and (in particular) salt?

If it does I'll be buying some! Would love to hear what you guys that use it think because waxoil is 'orrible stuff!

Looks like there's an even better contender then! I still think waxoil has a place because it's thick and provides a physical barrier as well as a chemical one.. the one in that video looks very good though and is no doubt less messy!

ACF50, any instruction on how to apply is it just on nutts and bolts or on everything metal/alloy other than brakes/wheels.
