    I have been putting a bit of thought into my new dampers especially in terms of protection

    As has been written elsewhere, the new units come with the Twingo style scraper instead of the cap which is a better solution however with these being more motorsport orientated they would probably be removed and cleaned far more regularly than I could ever do!

    @BenG posted this picture recently which on the face of it would provide even greater protection. So my question to those more learned than myself do you think these powerflex damper covers could be worthwhile with the new style scraper?

    Yep, anything that is likely to help keeping grit away from the rods has got to be worth a punt. What is the fit like top and bottom Rik/Ben?

    More protection is always good if you are a 3 or 4 seasons user. Fit is water tight top and bottom with a breather hole to allow actuation.
    It's the best solution I have found to date.
    This with the scraper seal has to be unbeatable IMHO

    Thanks chaps they sound just the ticket!
    Think I'll give them a coat paint as well as my OCD has kicked in. My paint sprayer suggested red :fearscream: But I think silver/grey. Not that brave.. ..
