    Okay fire me for over exposure and whining. Too much time on my greasy hands. I decided to remove the engine compartment coating and found, like most, cracks around shock tower. Could have got the patch pieces when I ordered other stuff and paid a bunch for shipping from the mother land; diy again. Then, that’s when I found rodent damage to wiring. You gotta wonder what is so appetizing about the insulation. Maybe we could feed the world with wire scraps; I’ll try it on teenage grandson.

    Murder =Pine Martin.We have very many here,much to the point its wise to take the extra insurance that covers the damage they can cause.A very good friend had to pay out 1600 euro for repairs to her 6 week old Nissan 4x4.I always have the cover since then.
