    GT: Body drain hole location(s)?

    I have had a look in the workshop manual, and a general forum search, but I cannot determine from my armchair what the body drain (water) locations are on a GT. Does any one know of hand. I am happy to have a look, if you explain the general location. The reason I ask, is simply because I...

    Exhaust valve on Granturismo S query(mc shift)

    Awesome that you know that so well. Is there a grease you would recommend to keep them freely moving. Something high temperature? Silicone grease? Copper slip? Pagid brake grease? I've not even looked at mine, but if it can rust "open" then some sort of lubrication sounds like good preventative...
