I need to get the trans back in mine so I can move it out of the garage.

Yup, just let it dry. It's a wax-like coat that seals out water. This will be the second year I've used T-9. I also use it continually throughout the year to keep the coilovers working smooth.

Got it, used it. It looks like it should work.

Awesome find! I was on another BC coilover thread and people were saddened by how poorly the BCs fair in northern weather. Nice to know someone found something that works.

Thanks.

Well everything's been said...except

-Lift your windshield wipers
and
-never use rubber mats, just vacuum the mats very well once a week.

Oh and winters in the front makes driving more fun



Taken two weeks ago..It's only the beginning
