Some washing up liquids are full of salt to bulk them out, so be careful about the long term viability of this idea.

Nasher, would the salt attack the plastic sleeving of the cables then? If so I am going to flush out my trunk

Sorry, didn't want to panic you or anything.

I'm not sure how bad it will be, I just think it can't be a good idear having any amount of salt somewhere you don't want it. If it can be avoided.

I tie the new cable to the mouse line then create a nose cone on it with some parcel tape and add a small amount of Silicone grease for extra slippage, which is probably equally as bad for another reason.

I will of course be corrected by somebody with more knowledge of the situation.

Nasher.
