Guilty here!

But that 1 inch high bulge that Bubba's screwdriver left from years of being under the hood edge is disappearing because of another Bubba trick....sandbag on the lump for 12 days/rather than a new hood or hours of fiberglass work....

Sand!!!!! near the paint????? Oh that will scratch: *****: I was actually thinking of putting something over my paint the other day as I was sandblasting the window frame. Current paint on mine is a 50 foot job so I don't worry to much about it. Ill just use some of that colored car wax: Guess I have a little bubba in me.

Sassy started out as a total Bubba-Mobile. Except for the brand spanking new rear suspension, differential and exhaust, just about everything else, was patched, wore out, whored out, stripped out or modified. Even with all that, and a barely warmed over L48 and a worn out four speed, she was still a blast to drive, starting readily, revving willingly and always, carrying that defiant stance for whatever reason, but to possibly state, that she doesn't give a crap what anybody thinks. She is, what she is, and whatever it takes to roll her out and feed the need, is what she'll get.

I guarantee you will regret doing that one day. Did you not have any duct tape in the garage? Would hold a lot longer....

Ya....that sucker ain't gonna leak any time soon!
I have a bad back and I'd have to pull the seats and all that's involved.
Bigger fish to fry right now!

as long as the job is getting done. I remember recently reading a post about an army guy saying something to the tone of it aint bubba, if it works than it aint stupid or something like that I did that to my car to keep it filling the battery compartment with water every time it use to rain. I remember what rain use to feel like. Now it just keeps it safe from the car wash.
