In lieu of Duct Tape

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

Seen  in a Target parking lot recently.

Out of duct tape? Hell, whip out the ol' construction grade power stapler.

Given Nebraska weather, I hope they are galvanized.Or, maybe he was in Target to buy a new roll of duct tape to cover the staples...thereby winterizing it. Clever, eh?

I don't know if I should be pleased in his ingenuity or afraid for his ability.

jadedj said...

Jackiesue---Be afraid for his gun...his staple gun.

Do you think maybe he kept the insurance money? Looks like a better way to fix things than spending a couple of thousand on a new fender. Or is it bumper?

Professor Chaos said...

Maybe it's just me, but I think that looks pretty cool. Frankencar!

I am downright inspired by this.... I have a fairly impressive duct tape fix on my front bumper, but the staples would give my good old beater a real rugged look.

good eye, you.

It's not nice to make fun of a lobotomized vehicle

jadedj said...

Rubeye Jack---I hadn't thought of that. Could be. That's why he was at Target. Good call.

Oh, the name of the part? My wife called it that thingy on the front. I'll go with that.

Professor C---Yes indeed...and the owner's name? Boris Carloff.

Harlequin---Sort of a pseudo-Hummer, eh?

w m---My bad.

Ol'Buzzard said...

I like it: think I'll trade my duck tape for a stapler.

Doug said...

I like it. I am surprised that a stapler could penetrate the plastic.

jadedj said...

Doug---Made in China plastic?

Not anything except drilling holes and tying it back together with nylon cable ties. Doing what needs to be done. Anyone can do this... Survive. Do what works.

Brothers said...

Not staples.

Drilled holes and nylon cable ties.

Really? Aren't there any redneck fixers here?

jadedj said...

Brothers---Nope...no rednecks here.
