Not The Usual Yadah Yadah
Remember, before working on your vehicle:
1) Set your parking brake and place the vehicle in PARK
2) Always allow engines to cool down
3) Wear safety glasses
4) NEVER work around open gasoline
5) NEVER create sparks over an open-top battery or gasoline
6) Always consult a trained mechanic and when in doubt, don’t do it
7) Knowledge is POWER and ignorance a voluntary condition, so don’t be afraid to learn, change and grow
8) Always consult your owners manual, shop manual or on-line resources

Bet you didn’t know the thickness of paint on your car is only 9-14 mil’s thick and THAT is all that protects it against the myriad conditions of weather—rain, snow, road dirt, acid rain and sunshine. Since a human hair is about 3-4 mil’s thick, that is very little protection from all that threatens to destroy your car’s finish.
