First, let me tell you what turns me on the most about a really, really clean bike. I drive up to a friend's place and get the same reaction I've gotten since I started riding 38 years ago, "man is that all you ever do is clean that thing"? No, I reply, my wife cleans it for me. It's worth it just to see them turn that funny shade of green. No, my wife doesn't clean my bike and that isn't all I ever do. I'm like anyone else I'd rather ride the thing. So why don't we get right to it, shall we?
We rely on our vehicle to take us to school, work, and leisure activities. We expect our automobile to start quickly, get us to our destination, and start-up on the way back. Whether it is the coldest day of winter or the hottest day of summer, we take our vehicle for granted and expect the gratifying sound of a rapid crank followed by a smooth running engine.
Corrugated board usually consists of outer flat sheets (veneers) of puncture resistant paper, sandwiching a central "filling" of corrugated short fiber paper (fluting), which resists crushing under compression and gives cushioning protection to the box's contents. The cardboard has high end-to-end strength along the corrugated flutes, so the box is normally designed with the corrugation running vertically for stacking strength.
For the top shelf I cut a piece of 1/2" plywood to fit to lay a sheet of glass on for my palette. The whole system is very sturdy and rolls easily (the wheels do lock in place if I want). I have ample space for mixing my paint and storage of brushes, large tubes of oil paint, and solvents and medium. I even found a plastic sheet cover that slides right over the whole cart when I'm not using it. I'm planning to paint the plywood a medium gray and want to get a bigger sheet of glass for the palette. I figure I'll also add some offset clips or mirror clips to hold the glass in place on the plywood.
You should clean your battery posts and terminals at least once every year. You can purchase inexpensive tools at a store like Harbor Freight to remove the battery terminals from their posts. You also need a special battery brush. Prepare a mixture of baking soda and water to clean any acid residue on the battery. Always remove the negative terminal first. Follow this order to avoid any short circuits if the tool contacts the body frame.
In no time at all you'll have each stones outline down to a rhythm. Most all the stones can be completed in two independent outline strokes and one more stroke to fill. Try to have an adult go first, stenciling ahead of any children. We know how eager they can be sometimes. Once the mortar coat is dry to the touch, you can stack all the sheets into one pile. Try to complete one sheet at a time. Stencil all of it then paint all the stones as well. Trying to complete a dozen at once is way too overwhelming of a task, believe you me. The stack is way soft now and everyone shouldn't mind painting for a little bit. No need to have perfectly painted stones because "The Powers That Be" didn't waste His/Her/Their time making them identical so neither should you.
