Hi Roli

I notice you have a step mat fitted on your Windsor. We purchased a fiamma step mat when we collected the Nuevo, but so far we haven't fitted it, as CC thought it might get covered in road grime as we are driving along. Just wondering, do you fit yours when you get on site or do you leave it on permanantly? scratch head

Comments from other members also welcomed if you use step mats/ covers.

Mrs CC boo

Good evening Mrs CC,

We also have the green fiamma mat on our manual step, which is left on all the time.
Although situated behind the rear wheel, it doesn't suffer too badly from muck thrown up.
I guess also that the pedestrian movement through the door, helps keep the bit that you can see, pretty clean. Although I do give it a hose off now & again. had_idea lol4

Good Morning Mrs CC,
Yes we do leave it on all the time as it does give shoes a better grip on the step. Yes on muddy rally fields it can get messy but a swill with water soon cleans it off, but in these conditions we normally have a foot scraper ( base of an upturned bread tray in reality ) so its only what's picked up with the van driving accross a field. One of our better buys !!

Fiamma Clean Step Mat

Post by CC on Fri Feb 24, 2012 10:13 am

Fitted the Fiamma Clean Step / Mat, slightly disappointed as one of the silly spring clips snapped when I attached it so I decided to use cable ties instead. A better solution would have been for Fiamma to use a Velcro join which would be more secure and easier to fit and remove.. second disappointment is the width of the mat as it doesn't fully cover the step edge to edge, but at £12 to purchase still not a bad buy.

Cable Ties are a bit like blue tack,superglue and WD40 - what did we do before they came on the scene ?

Copper wire mostly. And there is still the odd occasion when it's a life-saver. Not that I've had to rescue a dragging-along-the road-showering-sparks-and-making-a-bl00dy-racket exhaust for a few years.

Uh-oh, that was probably a Famous Last Words moment 'uncertain'

Off course again but with regard to dragging exhausts the missing items are of course, wire coat hangers, now a rarity, plastic ones are useless for that purpose, they used to make good radio aerials too.

My brain hurts. All these years and I'd never thought of using plastic coat hangers as a radio aerial replacement. Hang on, read it wrong. It was 'too', not 'though'.

Back in your box, Eggnog.
