    Got it dirty. Used a hose on it this time and then covered it in silicone spray. Will strip it tonight as water has got everywhere. When I kept going through some of the deep puddles the engine started misfiring. Think that the fan is drawing water up and my ignition doesn't like it. It only misfires for a bit then its alright depending on how much water I drove it through. Figured that this was the water drying out. Not sure about bashing it again in the wet now. Its good fun but cleaning it and servicing it afterwards is getting tiring. Need to strip it properly, check ignition, pull start, repack drive cups with new grease and replace all my wheel bearings. I think that the water has got in to them and they have rusted. They have been fine and then just gone in 3 weeks of wet driving.

    Any road on a plus point the cr@p deflectors are working brilliantly. I had the inside of my wheels full of mud today and I had no mud on my lower a arm packed between the drive boots.

    Initially thought all the steam coming off the car was just water on the exhaust until the car started misfiring. Water was getting drawn in through the fan and over the engine. When I checked the stop switch is was full of mud and dirt. The pull start also packed up full of grit and dirt and the pawls stopped working jammed open. Figured what was happening was the two connectors that plug in to the stop switch and the stop switch were getting full of water and started shorting out the ignition. There is a piece of metal on the inside of the fan cover designed to deflect debris away from the stop switch and connectors, but its obvious not enough for what I was doing, so when I put it back together I put a piece of heat shrink on the kill switch that also covers the connectors in a hope of deflecting the water. Also ordered another 5t skid plate. Going to leave this whole, with no cut outs. I have found that grass does not get packed between the plate and pull start in wet weather so no point in having the holes cut out in it, if I have a full skid plate on there in wet weather water might not get sucked in so much through the pull start. That way I can mix and match between the skid plates according to the weather and not have to put up with this mess again so much.

    Had to go back 4 pages to find this thread, thanks to DJ LOW
    Interested to know how does the spray stand up to fuel spills on to it ?
    Really want to spray mine but was a bit dubious about the fuel issue.

    I did mine a while ago and it's started to flake off by the filler cap.

    If you go careful when filling it should last the summer, then touch up or respray on winter stripdown looks better than stained yellow imo

    Looks good. I was down B&Q earlier (leaky roof) bought some rubber sealer paint. It set semi-solid, like rubber. Think I might try it on the tank now
