    So....

    I know this isn't as great as the great Bondo epic tale, but this has to be an honorable mention...

    Wife is out of town and I figure I will clean up the inside of the Tacoma.

    Well the front floor mats, especially the driver side where your right foot rests was looking pretty bad, even after scrubbing it.

    So I thought..what would be better than cold water with car wash detergent?

    HOT water!

    What would be better than regular detergent?

    Something caustic that is designed to break down oils and what not!

    What has both of these?

    DISHWASHER!
    High Temp wash + Pots and Pans settings!

    So I am now banned from the kitchen (it worked GREAT though).

    (She doesn't know I did the same thing with engine mounts before!)

    My rule is pretty simple-if it fits in the oven or dishwasher, it's fair game. I have found them to be very useful shop accessories:D

    This is true... I thought I was going to be banned when my girlfriend came home early and I was in the middle of the BHLM. The whole townhouse stunk of that headlight glue :D

    I still remember the expression when she came home, "WHY THE F*CK ARE YOUR HEADLIGHTS IN THE DAMNED OVEN? THE KITCHEN IS NOT AN AUTO BODY SHOP!"

    It may have been void upon marriage, but the enforcement can't be too strict because you seem to keep reverting to your old rule :D

    Just to forewarn you guys, there is a rather large heating element in the bottom that is capable of melting plastic. Use the washing machine.

    Oh the washing machine. Yes, that is very useful too for a wide variety of shop projects as well.
