A painting trick
I have discovered that living in the great north east (salt belt) and rebuilding a Jeep, lead to a lot of hours painting, and repainting jeep parts.
I have come across a trick that has made the process easier, and I thought I would pass it on.
One of the most pain in the ##### things for me when painting is taping off the stuff that shouldn't get paint. And when you are trying to paint somthing that has a lot of in's, out's and details. Getting tape to stick and hold is ofter somthing that just doesn't happen.
I have recently discovered CLAY GASKET. What it is, is long strips of clay, in about 1/4" diamater. It comes in rolls, and is intended for sealing around windows and other small openings. Well it also works great for masking off places that tape won't work for.
Being that it is clay it can be spread, molded, and shaped easily. And it just pulls right off when you are finished.
The actual clay gasket can be found at home Depo and like places, and like I said is sold in very long rolls.
