    More washroom fun

    In a gas station washroom. Did they just have a faucet and selector left over from the rest of the plumbing job? Maybe they use it to clean the floor? No shower head with it, although the faucet does have the little pull-up handle that would activate one. A mystery.

    Looking at 104s in natural metal finish, and rarely are the wings left bare, they're usually painted, and often white. Any particular reason for that? TIA

    Uploading pictures..

    If you post your image to facebook or Google+, it automatically resizes them. Then just right click on the image there, left click on 'copy image address', then paste here. works for me.

    Photobucket Fix?

    Can't believe nobody else has posted this yet, but it's the easiest way around PB that I've found: Post your picture to facebook or Google+. Right click on the image, left click on Copy image address, and then paste here. Simples. And there's no re-sizing needed, fb and G+ do that for you.

    Testors Clear Decal Paper Problems

    I've just had the same problem, and it was ink-jet paper. Not sure if the problem is the printer or the paper. I was advised to try a coat of matte spray on it first, but that made the colours wash out. I'm using an HP 4500 OfficeJet, with genuine HP ink. Tried various print settings other than the recommended ones, including maximum DPI and 'best' quality, no joy. In fact it seemed to make it worse, the yellow I wanted came out rather orange. It was my first time printing decals in colour, would love to find out how to do it better.

    Dang it all, we just missed our opportunity. Should have asked Elon Musk to hang on to his car and send the mildewed one into orbit.
  11. I don't have a fancy spray booth, so keeping dust off while allowing for air circulation was a problem. But I went to Sail, a large outdoor supply store here in Canada, and picked up a food cover made by Coghlan's: $3.05 after tax. It works so well I'll be picking up a few more.
