Desiccators are substances which absorb moisture in the air to prevent mildew and such. Typically, they use Sillica-Gel in a permeable bag.

In the Boxster, a few bags in each footwell and behind each seat is usually all that is needed. Try this company - Scroll down about halfway and you'll see 2 oz Silica Gel Tyvek Desiccants at a fairly good price. I would use about 10 of these scattered throughout the cockpit as described.

You can also reuse them by drying them in a microwave for about 4 min., then immediately seal them in a zip-lok bag to keep them dry until you need them again. Hope this helps...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
