No one should feel guilty about wearing gloves. Hand injuries can be prevented with proper protection.
Same goes for wearing safety glasses.
Hard to drive your car blind with no hands......but I know Bill does it all the time.

Luv the gloves! Now I don't feel guilty for wearing gloves when I worked on the alternator on my olds years ago. They were garden gloves but still useful. Great Pics!!! very interesting to watch the operation and I didn't get sick once

Let'* add...there'* nothing like safety..

You guys all know the funny pic of me at the beginning of the thread. I had safety googles on and it wasn't enough. Hence the bag, paper and packing tape. That kept the plastic out of my eyes. Before I work on the next taillight..I'll have a full face mask.

Safety is important..and sometimes we don't stress it enough..

I agree 100%. A lot of the forum members are younger so take it from an older guy, when working with dremal tool debris can fly off of the tool at high velocities. Your eye can be damaged too quickly. Be safe wear goggles or a face shield.

Plus wearing the gloves does not reduce the sensitivity of the finger tips and it makes the clean up process a whole lot quicker and easier.

It seems most 3800 owners face this project, so perhaps the best is to prepare for it, if you do your own auto repairs.
You could pay for a garage to do it, but it runs in the 4 figure.
Yes, it is like going to the dentist, something we all dread, but someting that must be done.

I have yet to do mine, I do not have a garage to work in, just the parking lot.
3800 failure is coming so we've got to get ready.

MOS keep in mind that if you do this BEFORE the intake fails, it will be way easier than trying to recover from post-failure. Much cleaner and easier.
