    I'm not sure this is Marine safe. We always ate the glue.

    LOL!

    As for digging metal splinters out in usually mangling my finger with a super sharp pair of tweezers to dig it out. I'll try that next time.

    As long as the fluids are cleaned out you can probably use it for any fluid fill you want to do. That makes working under the truck a good bit easier now.

    The transmission is the only case that gets different fluid in mine. I'm guessing a little 75W90 left over in the jug won't hurt when I fill it with MT90 for the manual transmission fill.

    To add to some of the first posts in the thread, a mixture of WD40 and starting fluid will also help reseat the a blown tire bead. Had to do this the Thursday night of Jambo since I didn't have a spare (and still don't ) I was too busy ducking the fireball to take pics of the process.

    I also staple absorbent pads to cardboard for all the leaks and drips in the garage. It makes for easy swap out and cleanup.

    I have that entire directory structure saved on my tablet so I can access it from anywhere.

    I downloaded the zip file version and then extracted it to the SD card.

    Funny - I just added these to my first aid kit in my car. New job has me getting my hands dirty and digging out glass/metal splinters sucks. These are a little pricey, but they are TOP quality and I don't care about cost when digging glass out of my hands.
