I did overserve myself one night so I could sleep. It wasn't worth the headache I had in the morning! Bought some Unisom & it worked wonders.

The acetone didn't seem to do anything, but the kitchen scrubby pad succeeded in taking off the top layer of my skin along with the POR-15. It's all gone!! All that's left are red spots all over myself, but hopefully it'll be gone tomorrow. Talk about dermabrasion!ow......

I may be too late with this bit of advice...but, olive oil (maybe other oils as well) removes POR-15 from skin. Alot gentler than ScotchBrite!

It's too late...now I'm putting polysporin on the raw spots from the scotchbrite pad. It still looked better at the doctor's office than black paint splotches all over my legs! I'll heal before next Friday.....

Dang Becky,

You're tough...acetone and scrubby pads. Do you do root canals with no anesthesia as well?


Glad you've come clean.

Have fun in Mexico,

Kevin

No, but one time I got a fish hook stuck in my foot & I pushed it through! This little kid who was watching me fainted. It was quite the good story when I got back to the condo!

I had a similar experience several years ago with a 3/8" bit through the thumb nail. Had to reverse the drill so I could get loose. Girlfriend almost passed out, but I told her someone had to drive me to the ER.

I've always said "You ain't hurt unless the bone shows"...Well in the bone did show that time. Most painful thing I've ever done.

Achie wawa!

Okay now I have a subject related question. I have the BAL stabilizer legs in the basement. I took them apart (I have a couple bolts to grind off) for painting. Should I POR-15 them (dread) or bring them in for powder coating. Any reason that would be bad? I have a place that's really reasonable & I'd love to not do that job! They're really nasty & greasy & rusty! Would that be okay as long as they don't do the threads?

Hi, I would think it would be cheaper to just buy new stabilizers instead of zink coating / galvanized, powder coating, or any other cosmetic repairs.

I looked at Out of Doors Mart & each one would cost about $70 once I had it shipped & had the foot (which I have). I think I can get all of it powder coated for that much. I'll take it over there & see what they say. The rust isn't bad. Just a messy job to clean up the grease & surface rust before painting. Maybe I'll just have it all sandblasted & then POR-15 it.

A good salt water soaking will take care any remaining spots. Have fun!

Well, I took the stabilizers and had them powder coated. Cost me $130 for all of them. Bought all new stainless nuts & bolts for $50. So, it cost me about half the price of new ones---hopefully they'll keep from rusting for a while!

Cozumel was nice & warm. Thankfully, the abrasion scabs were gone by then! I didn't see any Airstreams there!

Hey Becky,

Glad to hear your spots have healed up and the trip went well.

Would love to see some pics of the PC. What color did you go with?

Kevin
