    Stuff. Also things.
    I have a two car insulated detached garage that I heat with two dinky ass electric desk heaters. They were super cheap, have thermostats, and mercury switches that shut them off if they get knocked over. They’re an interim solution until I plumb in propane for a proper forced-air unit heater, but for my purposes, they kick ass. No problems whatsoever getting things toasty with the garage door closed, to the point that I can work at my bench in jeans and a t-shirt while it’s freezing outside and be perfectly comfortable.

    I would like to do this but I think my natural gas is run into the basement on the opposite corner of the house so it would be a pretty big PITA

    maybe I'll skip the electric 220 heater and just run the propane intermittently to keep things warm as needed once I get some more insulation in

    trust me, I have a bunch of long garage tees and hoodies... but when it gets too cold your fingers don't work so well and gloves can be too bulky for certain tasks

    There are no stupid questions, something something people asking questions. ;)
    This will be a license plate holder that goes into the hitch receiver on the rear bumper. The receiver is 6ish inches higher than stock, so shouldn't be be drug over rocks, and will be removable if it looks like that might happen.

    Stolen from the Amazon page for the Curt version.

    gotcha, I knew what it was but was curious about the choice to use 3/16 or 1/4 for the backing plate (unless I misunderstood your other posts :D :homer:)
