A PO of my car also had stock in Dow Corning, I did the same thing you
are considering. Now my B leaks. It did not leak AT ALL before I
parked it on cardboard and never saw a drop, in fact that is how I
found a loose radiator hose. Now I park it on cardboard to keep it from
leaving an oil on my floor... Next time I am in there I am going to
silicone the whole thing. I have looked for clear silicone to make it
less apparent, the best I have found is black...
