Default Cap'n Anal strikes again...

Last week I polished my 60th Anniversary SnapOn toolbox and someone commented about waxing his lawnmower. This came back to me this past weekend as I was mowing my lawn with a $500 Honda lawnmower that was covered in grass clippings & remnants of winter. Since this thing was more than I ever expected to cough up for a stinkin’ mower, after I washed it and scraped the green cheese off the under-deck, I went ahead and threw a coat of Nu Finish on the deck & wheels. No, I didn’t wax the under-deck.

No pics this time 'cause I really couldn't tell the difference. I just want it to be easy to clean.

Yeah, I know. I'm about to make a command decision on that. I noticed yours is keeping you rather busy lately. Rotten luck, mate.

Anyway, I think I got a little more top end out of my mower after the waxing. Might try some "Type R" stickers next weekend.

Got any more ideas for me, Haro?

Type R stickers Does that mean it will cut a wider path?

I'm going to the desert for 4 months; if you fly up here, you can drive her back Then I could delete my post on storage prep

That'* debatable, but I was talking about stuff for my lawnmower, not me.

Well someone needed to say it.

He will have the engine chromed out and a ricer style cowcatcher in the front.
