3693Re: leaky trunk
- Jun 17, 2005Hi - the mystery "my trunk is always wet inside": two things;
first - if you park on a slope and open the trunk after it has been
raining then water will drop straight out of the gutter around the
trunk opening into the trunk. Poor design - always park facing up
the hill !
second - there is a micro climate in the trunk; rather like
condensation on your house windows when water runs down the windows
under certain conditions. Because the volume of the trunk is so
large you can get quite a lot of water from out the atmosphere
deposited in there.
My 1955 Rover 90 has really bad seals so good air circulation - and
has never had any condensation and is always dry.
Hope this answers the query
