How to make it rain

Recommended Posts

It hasn't rained here in so long I can't remember. This morning before leaving for work I sprayed a coat of paint on some parts, and left the rack they're on sitting outside my garage thinking the hot sun would get them nice and dry by the time I get home tonight. A half hour later I looked out my office window and noticed it was pouring. It only lasted a few minutes. Not long enough to help revive my lawn, but probably long enough to ruin my paint.

If you have more parts to paint, you could earn a fortune taking them around dry parts of the country and put on fresh coats as you go.

I do what I can. It's a Karma thing.

All I did was mount my new "bearing-splitter puller" on the 36" mower arbor, and we had 0.8" of rain, and a "light show" with "percussion"!sm01 Wayne

Chris, Here is my failsafe method. Just pick up the tool tray from the garage and carry it out to the work-staging area... Here are two examples...

Actually, Wayne, the wet paint method seems to have worked pretty good. It's been raining fairly regularly over the past few days since I did that. I even had to break down and mow the lawn yesterday afternoon for the first time in weeks. And, right after I finished we got another pretty good shower. It'll still take quite a bit to revitalize my lawn, but it's helping.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
