Two t-shirts gave their lives during the making of this episode of Quick Shift.

    Well, you won’t have any trouble disposing of the t-shirts by burning them. 😛

      Even simpler, just keep using them as shop rags and eventually they may catch fire by themselves.

    Health tip: nitrile gloves have excellent gasoline resistance.

    I’d check this too, purely out of pervasive paranoia, but for a carbureted car such as this one with its external pump it shouldn’t make any difference at the tank end of things whether it’s running or not.
