Everything has been taken properly care of in its place for 10 years now :D

Some doubters might say prove it. But I believe you.
I'm just sayin'

I'm so glad I got on today, this was an "interesting" choice of reading material. The video you made and urban dictionary but are great! I do feel bad for the guy, but I'm sorry it is a good laugh

@GJarrett 5 days until 22 years... I've been reading early-2000's posts from you and others recently, checking out the heritage of the 2nd-gens, and this thread keeps finding its way back around.

In another 100 years when the Explorer is on its 28th generation, some descendant of yours is going to have this same problem, and he will remember hearing the tale of his great-great-grandfather... :p

@GJarrett Your world-famous man. Like a "rockstar" of 2 part catalyzed incidents. And people panicked when they superglued their thumb and index finger together or worse, their eyelids like one of my wife's children did. I'm not laughing though and glad that you are OK. I would think that someone could get blood poisoning from something like this. 20 years ago at work, about the same time of your situation, we were trying out 2 new products. One was POR-15 a one-part material meant for something and a Herculiner copycat 2-part product called "Gator Guard". After 20 years, on the test panel that we used Por-15 on, all of it has gone away. On the can it said to use plastic wrap between the can and lid to prevent them from gluing together. We bought the Gator Guard from a mobile Body Shop supply guy and he loaned us the applicator gun meant to screw on to can of rubberized undercoating. We mixed up the 2 parts and went to screw the gun on to the can and it was too small to fit the can. Oh no... I resorted to squirming around on the concrete, can in one hand, app gun in the other, making a royal freaking mess and somehow didn't get it in my hair or on my face. I did get it on my works jeans and after a 150 or so washings the cotton Levi's just wore away to nothing, but the Gator Guard looked as new as the day that we sprayed it. We were using it instead of rubberized undercoating. after that mess, we haven't used it again. Soon I will be undercoating a project and I think that we will just "stick" with the one-part product. I'm glad that you weren't seriously hurt from this and how long did it take to wear off?
