It only takes that 1% of the time you need it that makes lugging it around for the other 99% worth it.
Its like a condom or a gun. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

Thought this was kind of funny. The whole front end of the car is completely burned, but my Plasti-Dipped wheels don't have more than a few scuffs on them. So in case anyone was still wondering if Plasti-Dip was safe to use on your engine cove, I'm going to go with "Yes."

Apparently the towing company doesn't feel comfortable not having a fire extinguisher in my car either.
that'll buff out. hope you can laugh a little about life's misfortunes buddy.

RJ, I've already texted you my thoughts and condolences. Keep your head up man.
