Just painted my clock display red. I've seen the examples and it should look way better than with the red cellophane paper.

Be on the lookout for a picture thread after this Saturday that will have a bunch of pictures that everyone took at the meet. Usually someone makes it the day after the meet, but sometimes people get lazy and wait a few days, so just keep your eyes open

Gaffer's tape is roughly the same thing, but stronger and leaves no residue. It doesn't seem to be melting yet, but the mylar tape was there because it claimed 250 degree heat resistance.

Had one reception sucked. This is a Solara antenna, available also in 9", I got the 16". Still looks better than the damn metal lightning rod.

^loctite doesn't protect the rubber part from being ripped off or breaking teh antenna o.O

Quote:
... loctite or any type of threadlocker is just like a car alarm..
it's only a theft deterrent.

if the thief really wants it.. they'll take it.. even if it's broken off.
