Time Delayed BallJoint Bombs.......now that was cool.....

Years ago when I was a wee lad........
My pop showed me how to make home made bazookas outta the beer cans lay'n around his shop..... using cigarette lighter fluid and duct tape............
He showed me how to make a 55 gallon drum cannon using jest a wee bit of laquer thinner and a firecracker.....
He showed me how to turn a wee bit of acetylene and an aspirin bottle into the worlds greatest cherry bomb....
He showed me how to shear the bottom out of a bear bottle using the palm of my hand........
He showed me how to make a CocaCola bottle stick to a concrete block wall...........
and......... He taught me how to make a "run" in a paint job vanish before your eyes..........
BUT...............
Pop shudda seen that balljoint EXPLODE today after I heated that lower controll arm up......... he"dda reeeely gotta kick outta that one.......
KA FK'N BAMMMMMMMM BABBBBBY!!!!!
(as a WARNING.....the damd thing blew up SEVERAL minutes after heating the lower controll arm with the torch, blowing the ball and stud out like a rocket launcher...taking a small chunk out of the concrete floor before flying 3 bays down the shop and putting a HEALTHY dent in the metal wall.)
be carefull out there.....

====================On solid colors.......... "soak" it , keep it running......till it runs to the bottom of the panel and onto the floor. Sometimes....alot of times back when enamels were popular.....the paint was so thick it looked like "ice cicles" hanging off the bottom of the car...take a razor blade and trim it off.
~~ 00 L O
On mettalic colors, let the paint "tack" up for jest a bit.... kinda let it git gummy......then.....using 3mm masking tape.....(lay the tape over the run, press "lightly")... "SNATCH" that sucker out....then keep the area wet with light coats of paint so it all melts back togeather and lays back down.
:)
anywhoooo......... that was yeeeeeeaaaarrs ago. Now, today, with the new paint coatings....it's jest as easy to let it dry, sand, respray. But like pop was fond of saying.....clear coats and urethane took all the skill out of painting cars......now......you can train a monkey to do the job...very little skill involved.
~:~ marsh ~sips his crownroyal.....waits for a 27 yearold painter to post a reply.....about being called a monkey........... oh well....that'll wait......gotta go "lay some lead" on that quater panel~ ~:~
