This mornings project was a UV/waterproof cover for my new jack. Cut the leg out of an old yellow bluewater rain suit, double hemmed the big end over and coated all stitching with seam sealer.

PharmGeek - the stainless covers are worth the cost ... justify, justify ... as they are the only easily user replaceable non-plastic ball game in town!

Can I not just use a hammer and some duck tape and a very hot pan with metal in it and come up with the same thing?

Sure ... if you want to stay with aluminum instead of stainless, just get a baking pan ...

Target - A/S PJs - It worked for me, too. SilverMoon and Pharmgeek mentoring allowed me to get the sale price, by just mentioning it. I didn't actually go to the Target website, just mentioned the price you quoted and they rang it up. Hope they don't try to make the difference by selling my credit card information...

Picture of DIY cover for my new jack. The orange paint on
the coupler makes the coupler more visible when backing up. In shadow it would all but disappear in the back up camera.

Cool

For years I've ordered car parts & truck parts online. Now my first "Airstream" parts order arrived today. Taking care to reseal the Airstream, treat her and install some new exhaust fans. Also, couldn't resist a new license plate frame.

Can't wait till our personalized plates come from the FL DMV.
