Re: Making an old radiator grill look good

Try Mister Clean magic eraser the heavy duty one. I heard that its like 5000 grit. I use it on my white walls with Simple Green. Might do less damage than steel wool.

Re: Warning about c&g

I have used C&G over the years and had only the best customer service. There is something wrong. Maybe it is the way your mechanic approached them. Talk with Kyle.

Re: Oil leak from drain plug

Seems to me some place back in time I read that the washers were made of lead. So solder may be the thing. Make a ring of solder and solder the ends together.

Re: Brake fluid

So. If you are going from Dot 5 to 3 or 4 and flush out the lines with alcohol does it affect the rubber in the master cylinder and wheel cylinders? Or do you not flush the cylinders with alcohol?
