If you have to ask why...
But if you DID burn your thumb, you could repair most of the damage with
your manicure set and small bottle of clear nail polish, which should be
next to the hair dryer in your kit.
I'll have you know that the only nail polish in my toolbox is RED, and
that's used for coloring #57 bulbs because 57Rs don't seem to be widely
...aw, hell, I'm not going to win this one, am I?
(I still say that a heat gun/hair dryer is a handy tool. And if you met
me, you'd see right quick that I have no use for one for my hair...)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Factory equipment for dashboard lights on '64 Studebakers. Instead of
using a red filter, they simply specified red bulbs for the instrument
I've also tried the little Auto Meter "bulb condoms" and they are a
more elegant solution, but you have to remember to order them.
And sanitary napkins work well for waxing the car, nail files can clean A/C
relay contacts, hair curlers can be used to wind string, and purses can be
used to carry your stuff.
Next we'll see lilac-scented WD-40 and frilly curtains on the shop's
As that great American said: "Don't be a dis-grace to the man-race!" Say NO
I've tried PB Blaster (from the auto parts store, also seen
it in Home Depot). Got a can in the back of the van I've
used for several years. HD also has a dry teflon version of
lubricant, in a spray can, near the PB Blaster.
One advantage to PB Blaster, it sprays in a relatively
straight stream, so I can spray some oil on a part at a
distance. Like brake cables, while laying under the vehicle.
I don't know if anyone here has ever used a product called Sea Foam in
their vehicle gas tank for fuel system problems but I know that stuff
has worked for me. Cured a stalling, sputtering Ford V-8 engine.
Also cured a sputtering, bogging snowmobile engine. Sea Foam also
makes a lube spray as well and comes in an aerosol can. I don't know
what the chemical difference or the cost difference is between Sea
Foam and WD-40 but I switched to the Sea Foam spray just because the
other Sea Foam product worked well for me. Just my 2 cents.
By the way I have tried WD-40 on my creaky right knee a couple times
and I swear it did seem to make it less creaky for a little while
after....... I have also sprayed WD-40 on artificle fishing lures and
believe it or not I did get more strikes with it.. Heard that someone
else had done that before so I tried it. If you don't believe me, go
try it for yourself.
