Brakes are so rusted, I can't get it back in the garage alone. RIP

I never brought the hose in for winter, I got completely soaked from the spigot connection at the hose end when I turned on water pressure. It's still completely frozen...RIP
Sounds like at least one very bad day that was 6+ months in the making... I am assuming your car doesn't run at the moment.

Yeah car doesn't run. The only enjoyment it brings right now is me getting to clean it while I wait for parts

With base and slider, the aftermarket seats I put in the BRZ are 8 lbs heavier per seat than the stock ones. Good thing I put them in for comfort and not lightness.

Today I learned that hairspray is not just for the hirsute but queer folk can get as much pleasure from its use. Just been geeking out on the wonders of a hairspray coat..

Hairspray also makes it easier to install handlebar grips.
Modern marvels.

Not just easier, they also help keep them stuck on after the hairspray dries.

I've heard that the 57 variety can be used to simulate blood splatter. Just take a mouthful of the 57 variety, read something funny like "back in the day" story from good ole @humfrz. This will lead to an impulse to pepper your plastic model.. once the specks have dried, spray with hairspray, sprinkle some horse hair, some wattle and daub hey presto you'll have medieval looking something....
