I recently used one to soften up a plastic bumper and pop a dent out.

Put it to use again today preparing my rotten Rover for its up-coming MoT (Tuesday). The exhaust had two leaks, both at the joins. I tried packing exhaust cement in with my finger, but the gas pressure would blow it out before the heat could cure it. Used the hair drier to harden the cement up before starting the engine. Worked great. Thumb

What is a blowtorch if not a suddenly-bald mans hair dryer?

Long ago, on a car discussion forum far, far away, I'd got water in my vacuum-advance unit and then used alcohol to flush it out.

People seemed to think this was a daft thing to do.

That's the wrong manual! You have a copy of the Destruction Manual, you really should have looked at the Instruction manual !

Can't you just put a hair drier on it for a while or leave it in the sun for a bit?


Why would I have a hair dryer? Am I some kind of NANCY BOY?

(Ah, Maybe I'm supposed to have a girlfriend who will lend me her hair dryer. Maybe I am then. Sad

This would have to be a 12V or gas powered hair dryer though, so she'd have to be well-groomed but outdoorsy.

Do such girls exist? In the Israeli Army, perhaps? :ponder: )

Too late anyway. The alcohol is in. I can only await the hangover."
