Tales of JB Weld
Well, I have been reading (with GREAT interest) the topic on the "Mystery Shifter Problem." There is a lot to be learned from this topic, not the least of which is yet another testimony to JB Weld.
Here, for example, is one of the quotes from the shifter topic:
"one thing you can look into doing, is JB weld..
JB weld things up and re tap new threads for the bolt,
fix your shifter? I have heard about many things being fixed with that stuff, i have used it on a bunch of things also..pretty tuff stuff, and a cheap fix. as for how long it will last, don't know."
So, I got to thinking, what with it being New Year's and all, that maybe it would be a good idea to bring up an
Ode to JB Weld. Kinda in the "jolly good fella" spirit.
For my part, I just fixed the muffler on our 88.5 with Good Ol' JB. I recently fix the inscrutable Zuki broken plastic door handle, too. I've used it to beef up my battery bracket. I've been wondering how well it would work on a radiator repair. These days, I wonder a lot about JB Weld.
Well, it's your turn. What's your story?
What's the wildest, weirdest, whackiest thing you've ever done with JB Weld?
(No XXX stories, PLEASE!)
Viva Jay Bee!
Happy New Year!
PS--I was hanging out in a junkyard yesterday, long story.
Anyway, I saw two of the strangest applications of JB Weld on two different engines than I've ever seen before. It kinda looked like the rest of the car fell apart before the JB Weld failed.
I stopped and stared for a long time at those weird gloppy patches. Somebody had to be drinking a LOT of beer to think that JB Weld could have solved whatever their problem was. Oh, well, it looked good to them I suppose.
