    Yes the developer is vital, to show the dye coming through. For finding holes you don't really need their cleaner (acetone works), mostly that works best for surface crack detection where you apply dye, then wipe it away with a -cleaner- soaked cloth, then apply developer over the top to suck dye out the same way it went in.

    I paid around $15-20 each for my spray-cans at the welding supply some time back so if that price is for-real then MSC (hardly known for great prices) is the bomb.

    Get it? The bomb...like spray-bomb...nevermind.

    Stripping vinyl off old material sucks bad. Hours of not-fun.

    I had long-ago planned on building a tank for the Camaro, primarily for having something baffled to quell the side-to-side slosh/slam. Maybe in a few months.

    I had to look in my cabinet to see what kind of penetrant stuff I had, it's Fault Finder brand, ten bucks each for red and white at MSC: Crack Detection Kits & Components - Crack Detection - MSC Industrial Supply (mscdirect.com)
    This is a reasonably priced set up, but it's part of a 3 part kit (each costs about $10).... there's also a cleaner and developer.... nice that you can buy each individually and it is about the best priced I've found so far.

    It works in LSR! Lots of pizza box airflow enhancements.

    people with tiny feet don't get it, but the pedals are pretty annoying to anyone else.


    a bit more space for feet - and the benefit of not catching your foot under the brake pedal


    power window switch fixed


    and the rest of the wing parts arrived

    so I did put stuff in the motorhome and got a start on cleaning out the house in anticipation of a move.... but still, nothing.
