I would have thought that the salt would have been enough for you to require covered transport.  Had a salt damaged car, never again.

Right I'm going with the trailer option.  I have a gracious offer of support from a club member, which should help with a visit to Oakmere.  Or I can get Oakmere to move it.  I just need to factor in the Forrester swap.  I'm pretty busy at work, so don't have too much free time.

Salt has been the swing vote.  Though she'll get a complete work over with barebones when it gets back.

I am sure members will tell you it can be washed off, personally I don't believe it.   The grot traps and behind the tank was where the salt was killing my first car, and a re-skin was the only permanent solution.   Hence all my sevens since then have been SORN as soon as the gritters are out.

Have a look at this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7qJAeiGcxI   Barebones along with ACF50 kept my Exige looking amazing, have a look at this.

I 'Dinitroled' all my nooks and cranies when the chassis came back form Bruce - plenty of newspaper on the floor to catch the run off etc.

Changed my plan!

Weather looks good this weekend. Going to drive it back Saturday. I should be on the afternoon boat.  On Sunday it will get the mother of all details!
