So, this board has allowed me to cruise to my heart's content again! Thanks to Toolpants especially for enabling my roof to be back in business! Now for more minor quibbles... lubrication.

Where does one lubricate the convertible top? Mine squeaks in various places.

What does one use to lubricate? WD-40?

On the rails that the clamshell's arms slide upon, the OEM lubrication is something gummy, like a sticky jelly, what is it?

Thanks to anyone who can help me out. James.

I only do the slides for the clamshell but I guess it will not hurt to grease anything that moves. I use grease in a spray can that has an extension tube so it is easy to apply.

Don't know what porsche uses, perhaps a dry grease that does not attract dirt. On the cars I have seen it was as hard as a rock.

For what it's worth, I've been using a bicycle lubricant. There are several kinds available, but they are all based on the same principle ... a solvent-based wax suspension that dribbles on like water, but leaves a dust-free wax coating on all moving parts once the solvent evaporates. Seems to work really well.
