Mouse nests, dust under my passenger seat. Water to clean??
The LT I bought in Oct. was owned by a man who lived far down some gravel roads. So gravel dust was everywhere on and in it. I just finished putting on a new set of Ohlins this weekend. So the skins are off now.
On top of there being so much dust on everything (especially the wiring under the seats) there are old mouse nests up under the passenger seat. I was going to use a vacuum for as much of this job as possible, but that won't hardly touch most of the dust coating. I wonder (but doubt) if I could get away with using a low pressure hose or a garden spray bottle with water, esp while the battery is still removed, to rinse much of that away, without damaging electrical connections or electronics or starting to have some tough to find, even intermittent ghost shorts and grounds??? You guys have been a wealth of info in the past and your input is appreciated. Greg
