    • Thanks Guys I was aware of using soapy water to fix vinyl but didn't consider it for deck patch material. 'll give it a try. Michael
    • The use of water with altered surface tension as standard practice when I worked in the sign industry and using the standard deck patch material one drop of fairy liquid in a spray bottle is about  right.. If you are using the modern vinyl that they use for wrapping hen keep Dr and use a heat gun.
    • You are correct tiggy_cat. I had to move everything out of the Frunk (as they call it) on to the passengers seat and footwell just to get the proper rear wheel in. I have bigger problems with the Porsche now. I SORNed her last Christmas but kept running her 2 or three times a month, then what with lockdown this cycle continued. No point in putting her on the road if we are not allowed out to play. Well eventually the inevitable happened and the battery went flat, not a problem you say just take the battery out and charge it. Well both of the boots have electric locks. No problem I thought I have an actual door key on the drivers side so was able to open the door to get to the fuse box where there is a pull out terminal where I was told all you have to do is connect a 12v battery then pop the boot. No luck all that happened when said 12v was connected was the alarm went off disabling everything. Disheartened I gave up until a friend told me he had a Porsche trickle charger that connects through the cigar lighter, great I thought. I connected the charger up to an extension lead out of the kitchen window and then inserted it in to the lighter socket. Knowing the charge rate was relatively low I decided to leave it charging for 3 days. I confidently put the key in the lock after 3 days and pulled the door handle, to my horror there was a strange click and the door handle failed to open the door. So as of now the battery is still flat, the Porsche charger is still connected to the car and I have an extension lead going in to the car through the door seal and to cap it all I have no way of getting in to the car due to only the drivers side having an actual door lock. I have been told that there should be an emergency wire between the front and inner wing. just remove the front wheel and inner arch to reveal said wire. OHHHH hang on the key for the locking wheel nuts is in the front boot with the jack.
    • Absolutely agree with John... it's a faultless system... I dip kitchen roll in the solution wipe around the deck opening and go from there.  You don't have to leave as long as 24 hours, if it's in the warm a couple of hours will do
    • Put a very slightly soapy solution on the deck first then you can slide the patch around and get it in the right position with no wrinkles etc, then leave to dry for a day before use.
