1991 Acura NSX: The Wash
October 20, 2011
Like our long-term Porsche 911, I prefer to wash our NSX myself. And like the 911, I found a few flaws during its time at Takawashi. The exterior is in remarkably good condition, with just a few nicks and chips that you'd expect. The one area that I paid particular attention to, however, was the trunk.
In an effort to track down the source of the water leak, Magrath and Riswick suggested I lay down something called Noooozpaper in the trunk (apparently it's a 17th century internet). I took their advice and after I was done drying off the car, I slowly opened the trunk, looking in as I lifted the lid so I could see what was dripping.
Turns out, nothing was dripping. My guess is that there needs to be air and water flowing at speed to get it to intrude past the weather stripping. Oh well, it was worth a shot.
