Tip Of The Day #2

DISCLAIMER: The tip of the day is not intended for mature audiences.
If you are a "Pro" with all the tools and products at your
disposal please disregard the following. If you're a newbie
or cheapster like me you may like it.

Tip: When you want to protect your tires because you're to lazy to
remove them, use a plastic garbage bag. The kind you use for
the kitchen. They are a little small but if you cut the back up
about two thirds the way you can stretch them over the wheel
and cover it completely. Don't reuse them, they flake paint easily.
If your tires are too large use a leaf bag.

Good tip... I've been doing this since the late 70's... After painting I stuff all of the removed masking paper into the bags for disposal so they have two uses...

That would make it very hard to concentrate on the painting.

I've been using garbage bags to cover tires for a long time. I use the 30 gallon size and with enough pushing they will slide over an average size tire. Or if you get the garbage bag to stretch a bit they will slide over.

I use the new twist tie top trash bags by Glad. Place them across the front of each tire with opening at the 12 and 6 o'clock position. Next, get in the car and pull forward 1/4 tire rotation with the opening now at the top of the tire. Pull bag opening up, gather it together and use the convenient twist tie to seal the bag closed. Voila, the tire is sealed in the bag and there is no tell-tale streak of paint around the bottom of the tire where the other bag flipped up off the floor while painting! Remove bag in reverse order of installation. Also, the bags can be reused for trash by turning them inside out and filling with trash as needed. P.S. Be sure to remove the bag from the tires before driving!!! yuk,yuk,yuk!!!

That the neatest thing I've heard yet!
You guys keep elaborating on these tips and I'll keep trying to come
up with some. This is how we learn the stuff others do on a daily basis
that they take for granted as common knowledge,
To someone else it's a great tip.
It's amazing how many different ways we can come up with!
