I've used Shell VPower and BP Ultimate in my Tomcats for years with no ill effects.

Re: Door membrane adhesive

I had a missing plastic sheet on one of the my doors which I had a borrow from a spare door to get standard - yes I know you cannot see it! Surprisingly the membrane is quite important - even if you can't see it. IIRC it's there to help stop water ingress from the outer side of the door (i.e. off t...
