If the rear floor mats are wet, pull out the rear seat cushions and check for water under them. Buy some leatherique and slather it on the dash, seats, possibly the door panels as well.

Straight up, that's a parts car. Take it from me. I've returned a basket case 928 to service. It's not cheap. It's time and labor intensive.

The damage on his car goes well into the floor, possibly into the rear seat area. If it were just quarter panel damage, I'd suggest replacing. I had to do some structural repair on mine. It's not...

I've been using it for a few years in my power steering and no problems. If anything, the effort is reduced slightly. Maybe due to the lower viscosity.

I just plugged a "53" relay into the fog light socket. It works on the '85. Fog lights will remain on when the high beams are on, but otherwise it's fine.
