Fix a hole in the cover of the lawn mower bagger belonging to our landlord with a $30 fiberglass repair kit instead of ordering the replacement part for $150.
Project start date:
- Procrastination is not my friend.
- Fixing the bagger with a $30 repair kit instead of ponying up $150 is a great idea - in theory.
- Fiberglass resin stinks. Bad.
- Fiberglass resin is sticky and permanent.
- Fixing the bagger on the kitchen table is not a good idea.
- One should always make sure the resin lid is securely fastened to prevent spills of resin on the above mentioned kitchen table and tile floor.
- If you step in spilled resin, everything you step on will become part of your foot.
- Fiberglass resin eats through latex gloves and Styrofoam plates.
- Fiberglass resin burns with prolonged skin contact.
- Rings should be removed before applying the resin in order to keep them from being permanently attached to your finger.
- A team of retarded chimps could have done a better job applying the fiberglass than two competent women.
All that matter is that it works, right?
