Rusty Bucket Defies Fix


Let's imagine we are going to patch up a leaking rusty bucket, rendered paper-thin. Can I weld on some patches? Would a coat of paint work?

None of the above. I am quite glad that we will never see that thing working again. As I've said before, even if they used all the glue and binder twine in Canada, it would still be a seismic death trap.

These days, I mourn the death of my 93 Camry. It was my mother's car, and it was perfect for 17 years. Then all of a sudden it had a massive heart attack and the engine seized. Off to the scrap yard. So sad. Perhaps, I should have patched it up?
