    I thought I’d test the laquer first in case it went t*ts up and ruined everything. Anyone for a fancy lacquered spanner.....

    I think considering how bad they were they have come out well. I have only ever repainted calipers that have been originally red so I’ve never had to etch primer. I tend to put a coat of lacquer over even if the red paint I’ve used says you don’t need it. I find they stay glossier for longer with the extra coat of lacquer. You haven’t got to go crazy, just a couple of light coats will do it 👍

    Jumped in the car on Monday to drive home to find the from screen covered in thick mist that wouldn't clear and a overheating coolant smell. The water temperature remained normal, after a bit of research the heater matrix seemed the most likely culprit. As it turns out it's not that big a job as it is on normal cars where the heater matrix sits on the inside of the bulkhead in a Boxster it 's on the outside so easy replacement. I expected the matrix to quite expensive OEM £416 or Hella £120. Guess which way I went? Hella, correct. Anyway this how to swap one out. Remove the wiper arms, then the 3 Torx screws on the plastic scuttle At either edge of the windscreen are 2 nuts Disconnect the wiring to heated washer jets and remove the wiper scuttle in the centre you can see where the matrix is, behind the battery under the membrane Remove the wiper motor 3 screws,no need to disconnect the wiring just move to one side Disconnect the 2 struts, 3 screws each Clamp the two hoses Remove the membrane and undo the jubilee clips The matrix is held in by two screws and spring clips Reverse the procedure to finish off. You may will need to bleed the coolant system after I filled the matrix up with coolant before I put it back in.
