    Gabriel,
    Go to your local welding supply and get a sheepskin sweatband.
    They have snaps and make the band much more comfortable.
    They look like: http://store.cyberweld.com/coshsw.html

  6. Brian_R added a post in a topic what color dominates your builds?   

    My top four colors are:
    Blue 92
    Red 63
    Green 39
    White 24
    Then it starts trailing off to the two tones and others.
    I guess I really like shades of blue.

    UPDATE: Chrysler told Yahoo Autos this afternoon that while it did not have any records of crashes involving Vipers donated to trade schools, the cars involved did not have historical significance. It also said it regularly expected vehicles donated to schools to be destroyed once they had lost their educational value, which the cars in question had given their age. The full statement:


    "Approximately 10 years ago, Chrysler Group donated a number of Dodge Viper vehicles to various trade schools for educational purposes. As part of the donation process, it is standard procedure — and stipulated in our agreements — that whenever vehicles are donated to institutions for education purposes that they are to be destroyed when they are no longer needed for their intended educational purposes.
    With advancements in automotive technology over the past decade, it is unlikely that these vehicles offer any educational value to students. Chrysler Group fully understands and appreciates the historical significance of the Viper and is very active in preserving many of its legendary models and designs for historic purposes however, none of these vehicles fit into this category.
    Chrysler Group has no record of any legal proceedings involving Dodge Viper vehicles donated to educational institutions being involved in accidents and product liability lawsuits."
