    I just went out to start my van to go to work. On the way past my Hawk, I noticed the paint was all ... cracked? Chipped? Peeling off anyway. It DEFINITELY didn’t look like that last week! The car had an Earl Scheib-style repaint at some point in the past, so maybe I found a new way of removing the old finish...

          I solved that problem! I moved to South Carolina! But down here, everybody complains when it's below 45 degrees.

            40, that's my cut off too Bob. I can get a 24x24 up to 40 degrees pretty easy with the salamander running. Once I can't see my breath its plenty warm enough to wrench on stuff.
            Very enjoyable garage time.
