      Rover 75. Bit of a known issue relating to the sunroof drains - apparently a moderately easy fix but I want to get the car dried out again before any mould sets in, or any electrics are affected.

      I'm told there could be 5 or 6 litres of water soaked into the soundproofing foam underneath the carpet, so I'm guessing that moisture-absorbing crystals probably won't be sufficient on this occasion - any link to info about them Sulla, or a brand name I can look up?
      Tis but a scratch.

        Got them in the local hardware store You can get tubs of them as well as individual containers with which you fill with crystals
        Homebase & B&q certainly have had them in the past

          Kilrock the brand name on the tub. Calcium Chloride the active substance. I wouldn't recommend spreading them about, they need to be housed in a container. They absorb water and turns into a messy gue, which is probably quite corrosive.

                Never offer your warm toilet seat to a tall dark and handsome stranger in a public lavatory. Doing so may lead to a serious misunderstanding.

                    Any idea whether it extends as far as the Cork County cricket ground? If so, then I'm relocating to Cork City.

                      No clue OD. I was sitting in front of the new bandstand/stage thingy. I'm heading down there again today and if I think of it I'll check.

                        No wifi by the Cricket Club Mr. Elderly Dog. I didn't go down to the club house, just stood on the road and searched for wifi, but there was nothing turning up.
