Yup. A hose clamp that was on a rubber line at my fuel filter broke and caused gas to spray everywhere. I started the car while looking underneath, and gas was spraying like someone turned on a tap :\

Got my leak fixed. It took less than two minutes. I done it in the same amount of time it took my friend to check the tire pressure on all 4 tires on his car. lol

I need to move some stuff around in the shop tomorrow. Helping a friend build a new turbo engine. This should be fun.

I'm gonna use Plastidip. I dont want the paint look, it'd be too shiny. Members on my other truck forums have used it on everything from wheels and bumpers, to badges and the bed. No problems from them. All in how it'* prepped from what they say.

Yes. I noticed that when I done my dash. I took the time to prep the main pieces and the came out great, but I decided to do my window switches last minute, and 3/4 didn't come out as good as the dash. All because I didn't take the time to prep them better.
