Its reaching that time of year again and time for my annual reminder especially for any new members or new owners.

As the cars have no door frame the glass will freeze to the rubbers this will make it hard to get in and the window motor will go into a mad moment as it cant drop the glass a few mm or get it back up. use Gummi-Pflege around the door rubbers it will make your life much easier on a frosty morning .

https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Nextzett-91480615-Gummi-Pflege-Rubber-Care-Stick/1005414647?iid=362437817165&chn=ps


Also give everything under the car except the brakes a really good coating of ACF-50

http://www.acf-50.co.uk/acf-50.htm


check your anti freeze and I am sure others have little snips of advise on getting your 911 through the winter without wrapping it in a blanket and storing it away until spring . Thumb Thumb

Phil, I was 400m outside of OPC driveway after dodging a massive bullet with some stuck spark plugs, feeling content with the world and then bang.
Must have chipped the glass and then that night was cold, pull out the driveway and a 6 inch crack as the car twisted.
I nearly went back to cut the f****** tree down. Wall

Daft question on the ACF-50

Do you just spray everything under the car that you can see? And is one aerosol can enough to do the whole car?

Might need to jack the car up to get at it....

It’s worth the time to check tyre pressures and condition of tyres all round , it’s worth getting the wheels off for this sometimes inside walls can have nicks and damage not always apparent from the usual viewpoint ..

Lubricate rubbers on ‘The Frunk’ too ......

I like to treat the engine compartment with Aerospace 303 protectant ( follow instructions carefully) ..swear by this stuff.....

Essential for 993 owners for when in the garage:



Reminds me who was the owner that was bored over winter and inflated the compacted spare wheel as he was amazed how it operated Dont know

Thanks for the heads up, have seen ACF 50 mentioned a few times on this forum so have just ordered some.

As above generally how much do you need to do under the car?

Gents re the ACF quantity needed depends on how liberal you want to be with the application , you cant go wrong if you buy 2 get the undertays off and spray away if you have some left it can stay in the mancave until next time. avoid spraying the brakes .

Terry, Aerospace 303 protectant I have heard of it being used on cab roofs etc but didnt realise it could be used under the car aswell as said further up using anything has to be better than using nothing and if that works for you great and worth considering by others.

good call on checking tyre condition Thumb Thumb

Mike I may have to send a pot of Gummi up to Hartech to do my winter prep on the doorrs Floor Floor
