Another green (mild) winter – what a pain in the ar$e for roadster owners

Not such a fan of the rainy weather... especially with a cracked third brake light. Boot is literally full of water. Sopping wet carpet, soggy boxes, mould growing on helmet bag and gloves, not happy :thumbsdown:

Boot seal looks fine, so dried it out as best i could, duck taped the crap out of the broken brake light, and a sock full of rice for good measure. Hopefully be dry by trackday next weekend!

No way will a cat get under a half cover. Unless you blend it spray it up there.

You’d be surprised just how much water does get in when you have a fecked 3rd brake light!

I’ve just replaced mine with the BMW one as the rubber seal and the corners were peeling out! As soon as you opened the boot lid it literally poured in at the corners! 🤦‍♂️
