    After seeing the damage brake fluid did to the skin on my hands I am all for rubber gloves. What sort do mechanics wear?

    There are two types of mechanics gloves which I use, for wet oily work, brake fluid, old engine oil, etc. including coloured polishes:-

    When I'm working with dusty or dirty, general muck, then I would use mechanics gloves or similar:-
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/24-PAIRS-...hash=item2a6f318738:m:mf7kClf2fX2H460AoCP7qZw which are slightly thicker and can also protect against some inadvertent "sharp edge" injuries.
    Both types are throwaway and fairly cheap. Nitrile gloves are preferable to latex, especially if you happen to be allergic.

    I have ordered some of these as Marigolds are cheap but they don't last long.

    Yes, I'm trying to remember to put gloves on before doing dirty work these days as my skin isn't as tough or resilient as it was when I was young. A box of nitrile ones, and then some of those PU coated lightweight work gloves sorts me out. The latter are surprisingly good for detail work like putting nuts on and getting screws in holes. The only trouble is that when I'm using an electric drill or driver they tend to 'pick up' and wrap round the rotating bit which can be quite painful!

    Salutary lesson there. Always try to keep fingers away from the dangerous end; the turny bits! :rolleyes::D

    I had to pull a dead pigeon out from under the bulkhead removal bar.

    Shame I did not have my camera with me, Seems to have been there a few hours as rigor had set in.

    Very Bizarre..................:confused::confused::confused:

    Cheers

    Oil and filter. Seem to have had a bit of a leak around the rocker so also replaced all rocker seals.
