    Throttle body rain cover!
    I've yet to seal the scuttle but it will be done when it dries up

    Yes I bought the P seal but I've not siliconed it yet as I may have a new windscreen.
    RayC on other side covered using that.

    That link actually helps me with a problem with my rooftop aircon unit. The Sundance is useless at roof drainage, and the water level can get high enough to go into the vents on the side, which then leaks inside. I have been looking for something to sort this for ages.
    The L seal on the link is perfect, I will attach this to the side of the unit and seal it, giving an extra 20mm depth to the vents, hopefully this will cure the problem.

    Knocked this up with a PG11 stuffing gland

    Next option is a silicon sealant nozzle. These are 16mm and a good tight fit if scuttle is drilled with a new 16mm speed bit.

    This would accomodate larger hose.

    Then secured with 16mm star washer

    Like that mate. It may fill up due to the taper, but its easy to reach and "dig" the muck out..
