Lowest jet wash setting And the lance in the top of the drain is my cleanout routine.

 

the trombone cleaner isn’t always able to clean a well blocked up tube.

Out of interest did you just know where all the drain holes were or did you work off a diagram?

I currently have an unused trombone cleaner at home that has neither cleaned a trombone or boxster drain holes...…….

Cheers mate, looking forward to seeing a few pics.

Oh, and I can give you the correct answer about fitting a stripe.  Don't do it, these cars are perfect as they are, and don't need anything adding.  You're welcome :lol:

Had a run out last night to a local TIPEC meeting - country lanes, fog, bit damp  - Roof Down and lots of fun - Brands tomorrow evening, run to Paragon on Sunday.... One of the best times of the year to have a convertible with a decent heater. The new rear tyres are noticeable and it's still making me smile

Cheers all without stripe it is then, the floor has been screed and will have carpet tiles from tomorrow I am just waiting for posty to deliver :) 

The Porsche crest came from ebay about a month ago, about £50 if I remember correctly. There is a guy who sells signs who I contacted as its a mare to buy Porsche stuff like this as its policed heavily.

The sign guy goes under the name uk-fabulous-finds on ebay. May be worth contacting to see if he has anymore stock?

The stripe is removable so why not if you want to try it. I've seen various forms of stripes - one, two, central, off-centre, black, silver, translucent, bonnet only and over the full length of the car. All looked fine and personalised the car.  You wont get flamed for doing it!
