    Just a reminder for the other hairdressers on here that its maintenance time for your soft tops. I highly recommend going over all the rubber seals with Gummi Pflege - its helps stop rubber freezing and contains UV filters which help prevent hardening and cracking. The product is brilliant and really keeps the rubber in tip top condition.Also whilst your there is a really good time to check that all your drain holes are functioning correctly before the worst of the weather kicks in.

    Did all this today followed by a polish/glaze and wax in time for the winter.

    Good source of Gummipflege is Micksgarage on eBay, look for his listing of 2 bottles for about £12 delivered, much better than £10 for 1!! Keeps all the seals on my S204 as well as my 968 cab in good condition as well as cutting down on squeeks.
