Bryan, that is what others have said, I'll give it a try. You know the funny thing about this, NO ONE that I have chatted with on a number of forums about this has ever did it themselves! No one has said, "I have done it, here's how", NO ONE. I get a lot of "I think this and that" you know, just discussion. But not a single person has said they have seen it work, "I heard from a guy" but not SEEN it.

Like I said, the ice is right there at the store, give it a try. One thing that I noticed is that dry ice is just not as "burning cold" as people say. I held this block of dry ice with a simple gloved hand. The guy who pulled it out of a bag for me at the supermarket had some simple rubber gloves. I picked up pieces with my bare hand didn't burn me like I had always heard. So, you can get the metal warm, and cool it with water, I don't think it will react any different than the ice. Dry Ice is no magic potion, that I am sure of.

Brian

Unless you've got a six-pack that's been sitting in the sun.

are the guys who try to use dry ice to remove dents the same guys who use slide hammers to keep their beer cold? Never use a screwdriver to do a chisels job.

Hey Shane, try rubbing some of that Bowotox on Brian's Prius fender. You might get a new myth started. If it works, you can enter it in the Myth America Pagent.

He's awfully frisky today.

Oh, Smiley Shopdog is 4.75 years old, weighs 160# and is the best dog I ever had. I waste no opportunity to get him in a picture either.
I do need to get out the carpet kicker on that boys backside though and do a restretch..

We've wrecked this very serious thread, haven't we?

This is what happens when old men stuff their noses in too many Bondo cans and then meet up on the back streets of the internet.

It depends on who is resposable for it.

Same damage, different resposable parties..

Brian, sorry for mangling up your thread and getting so far off topic. Mikey and I, along with Myth American, are totally resposable.
