Gummy Phlegm arrived and duly applied to rubber seals on Boxster

In a similar vein....

Any recommendations for cleaning up my wife's (exhaust) tips and protecting them for the winter? They need a bit of a clean and polish but I was wondering if you can apply any form of wax or sealant on them?

Thanks

Winter? You might want an ice scraper, a long handled snow brush, a (folding) snow shovel, some knee pads, jumper cables/jump start power pack, a travel blanket, some gravel in an old Pringles tin (believe me, this can be a godsend on ice...), a tow rope, as well as the hi-viz, warning triangle, torch, spare mobile phone etc.

I put a room dehumidifier (container of silica gel) in mine for the winter - you can buy small ones in B&Q, homebase etc. for the last couple of years I used the onetime use versions, this year I upgraded to the type you can dry out in the microwave.

It just means there is no condensation on the inside on those very cold mornings - especially if it hasn’t been driven for a few days. Works a treat.

I know some of you live on the Costa Geriatrica, but some of the rest of you live in the wilds of Yorkshire and Scotland, where snow tends to fall.

I'd say that if you just take two things for winter, a decent snow brush (with ice scraper built in) is a must have, as well as a tow rope. If you do slide into a ditch, you'll need a rope to help get you out; many people might stop, but since nobody carries a rope, they'll not be able to get you back on the tarmac. At best they can commiserate, shrug their shoulders, or give you a lift to the pub. what

PS I wouldn't want a tracked vehicle from Russia, as some of my neighbours would inevitably take a pot shot at me, or throw a Molotov Cocktail.

Good one. I suppose I should have mentioned that you really need a nice Porsche branded bag to carry all your winter gear. Wink
