Tip of the day #7

Ok, most probably know this but for those who don't it's a great tip.
(I was reminded of this by our famous "Bondoking")

#7. When painting up to a rubber gasket like around a windshield,
stuff a small rope or heavy twine in under the gasket.
It'll hold the rubber up off the surface allowing you to paint
in under the gasket. When done and the paint is dry, just
grab one end and pull the entire rope out and the rubber wil
eventually lay back down.

Tip 7a

Be extremely careful zipping your pants when "going commando"!!

(Hey, we needed a bit of humor, didn't we?)


That WAS a good tip though. Never thought of twine/rope!

The problem is rope or twine can be a source of lint or worse. Instead, use the rubber "rope" used to hold the house window screen into it's frame.

Good idea Brian!! And I have some of that in my tool box, why didn't
I think of that. That's what's good about this forum, sometimes
it opens your eyes.

I just use regular insulated wire. I have a few rolls of different gauge wire depending on the size of the rubber. 3M also sells 'lifting tape' for the same purpose.
