Lots of shade is great but man, trees are rough on older car paint... you got that right!

Cheap beyond cheep if you come get that 72 GP sinking in my yard. No extra charge for the moss.

I have a tiny true story but the details have faded...

There was a time, as a bodyman, when I drove my Olds V8 powered Oldsmobile to an Oldsmobile dealer and worked on Oldsmobiles in a uniform shirt with my name and Oldsmobile (only) on it. Some of my best years, Grape didn't have hail damage yet but no Cragars either. But, I worked on one of the last 500 Oldsmobiles. It was an '03 Bravada, specially marked. Best I can remember, either I took part in the predelivery make ready process or fixed some minor transit damage. Just another brown SUV with a fancy 500 stitched on the seats or something. It absolutely tore my heart out, letting my beloved Oldsmobile go. It caught a bullet hole within a month of sale. Door glass saved a gal from catching it in the leg though. I don't see it around town anymore.

cozwurth I think I'm finally finished working on all of the lawn equipment around here. Push mower was sputtering and hunting a little, so I pulled the tank/carb thing and replaced the diaphragm between them. Smooth running B&S now. My ABS soup seem to be getting better. I've been leaving the lid off of the mason jar and stirring it with a plastic fork every few minutes while I was working on other stuff. The fitting is completely melted, and the chunks are gone now, and it is beginning to thicken.

I finally fixed the 3rd brake light in the camper shell on my truck. I'm legal now, woo-hoo! The painter had cut the wire when he pulled the bed off, and never fixed it. I didn't realize it until I put the shell back on recently and couldn't find the wires. Now if I can just get the dash fixed...

Oh and I am no 496 David, up to my elbow in unleaded, but a dab of acetone on a mosquito bite, or cheap thinner, puts a stop to the itch.

Not unleaded ,,but Diesel..lol.

Now that we have an obsolete first aid technique / product discussion going, I can think of at least half a dozen different products from kiddo daze that are no longer. I'm sparing you guys by not rattling off names, so as not to fuel that fire. Everybody sit quietly and think of five of them and that can be your homework.

Plastic butter, eh. Trip, never heard of. Like you, when I have a need I consult youtube.

My healing approach seems to be working, I rely on ointment to soak in and push the dirt out. Kept it clean all day. Make my own all day bandages. On and off with tight gloves a dozen times, never budged and never got wet handwashing. See? Oh, oops that was my thumb.

Not unlike when your wrenching turns into a lot dirtier job than you thought and you scrub up but still have black on your elbows at the supper table. Lotion up before you go back to work til dark, then by bedtime the stuff washes off.

Hygiene, with IDJ.

cerial Use hdpe. It is recycling ♻️ 2 on the lable.
It melts down easily to a plyable state with no fumes.

Some soda bottle caps, cofee containers, etc use it.
I picked up 15 or so plastic pepsi (the kind distributiors use to carry the cans) containers a week ago for $1 at a auction. All hdpe and easily melted down inside a oven with no fumes.

ABS is a pain to work with. Even 3d printing the stuff off a spool is a headache. Hdpe on the other hand can be melted to abs to make repairs,(machined), sanded, and then painted for a low cost fix.
