Re: Flatty Friday: This Crusty Flatty then. Will it Run??

It was great to hear it run gives me a little hope I can do the same with my 8ba. It's very cool to watch it from beginning of the process to the end.

Re: So much for Irish Spring and Dryer Sheets.....

Put twist ties on the old fashion snap traps with the metal tang. They won't clean them off anymore. Coworker taught me that one has a very low fail rate.

Re: 38 truck resto
