IT’S NOT A 69 – IT’S A 70

It's called rust. It never sleeps. But I have a cure for it.A little siding from one of the garage projects and it's good to go.   Neo has no clue what he's doing. He's a real dog. How about some rust and stain blocker? It's almost a hundred degrees out there right now and I'm indoors with only... Continue Reading →
