    StrutWipe Tommy's nose strut was in awful form. During the pre-buy it actually groaned and froze in place when compressed. Well, I'm pleased to say that the 4X4 StrutWipe did its thing and the chrome cleaned up and StrutWipe Tommy no longer groans and the strut works smoothly.
    During the up coming annual, I'll rebuild the strut so all of the internal components look and operate just as well!

    After a solvent wash and dry, just smear the strut w full strength STP. It really reduces friction of elastomeric seals. DAMHIK.

    But wouldn't STP attract a bunch of dirt which effectively breaks down the seals?

    Fair question. The difference is the wipe. This 100% cotton wipe is already max saturated with 5606 but will not drip. You just take it out of the ziplock package and you are ready to go. No looking for paper towels, oil can, squirting oil on a rag, dripping everywhere, and not getting an even coating. With StrutWipe you wipe down your struts, yoke chain, and you're done! Clean and lube in one step! Plus the wipe can be used as many times as possible before it either gets too dirty or dries out. Just throw the packaging back in the plane or your bag. No mess! I get three to four flight out of one 4X4 StrutWipe with one strut and the yoke chain depending how dusty it gets in the Dirty T.

    You can write a letter with a quill and ink but it's a lot more convenient to use a pen!

    Nope. I read it as him being a user of the product.

    His username and avatar are the same as the product. And it is in Classifieds. Claro que se.
