    Seeing as how I'm asian, I'd just shove my trusty chopstick down there.

    If it doesn't work out for the truck it'll make a great flush handle in your "workshop"!

    Re: Little DIY Project - Shift Knob

    Ok so I suffered a pretty catastrophic failure with the paint here.... The painters tape pulled the finish off and left a mess. I guess I'm gonna have to do this all over again... I'm wondering if I'll need automotive clearcoat to do this job?

    I guess try two is comming up...

    Late to the party. To quote a formative figure from my childhood, "Throw it in the gutta, go buy annotha."

    Latrine workshop notwithstanding, kudos for attempting a DIY and posting about it.

    Sorry this didn't work out Miami.

    Phase IV looked pretty good. I think you should stop there.

    Regarding Umberto's point about the kitchen, maybe you can bake the paint in the oven.

    OT, but is that one of those water saver toilets? The tank looks really small. Either that or the tissue box is huge.

    Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

    When you deals with holy crap you need large tissue box!!!

    Can't wait to see version 2.1 - Good luck. BTW, The only good thing you have done so far is... if you plan to list your house on the market you have all the pictures you need to show it off

    You guys are out of your minds... Of course I don't actually work with it in the bathroom. Just has better lighting for pictures.

    And for the curious, it's one of those new quiet toilets. 1.6GPF.

    How sad is it that the best lighting in your house is in the bathroom? :P
