So, it all started by fixing the leaky rear window on the convertible, it’s needed doing since we first bought the car, but I’ve been putting it off.
Every time it rains, I find a mini swimming pool in the roof hold, not only that, but the carpets in the boot and footwell had also begun to feel damp. Once I knew the rear window fix had worked, I began to remove things; I wanted to ensure I rid the classic Saab of damp before Winter, except every time I removed something, I found more water.
I removed the boot carpets, the rear seat, the driver and passenger seats, the interior carpets, and the soundproofing below, in effect, deconstructing the 900.
I’m being more thorough than I need, but the Saab deserves it, I’ll dry everything out, and get the carpets cleaned, and whilst the seats or currently residing in our home, I’ll give them a full Gliptone leather treatment too.
I’ve found it a very reassuring excersise, as not only is there absolutely no rust in the boot or footwells, even after 20 years, but I’ve been able to admire the Saab’s construction; no wonder it has earnt the reputation for being well built, It’s like a tank.
Inner beauty as well as outer beauty, aren’t Saab’s fantastic?
