I'm think I'm addicted, and I don't want any help

Spent a good part of the day in the shop today. It was raining and I figured that it would be a great day to spray and about time to get everything in my shop Fluid Filmed.

One sad note on the day. I did something silly. I was caught short in the battle - Caught without ammo. I lost my new buddy. My first can of Fluid Film sprayed its last squirt, and I didn't have a replacement. It had a short, but illustrious life battling rust, moisture, and restoring life to unusable tools. It won't be forgotten. The memory will live on with two new brothers in the fight - Home Hardware opens at 07:00, on my way to my first job of the week.

I'm not sure if the next cans will live longer. I think that I'm getting addicted, and I don't want help. I find that one of the places that my mind goes when I'm alone, and installing by myself, is thinking of new things to spray.

The battle continues.

I have steel toe runners, does that count. I had a fog cloud of FF in my shop yesterday as I was spraying. Everything got covered. I didn't apply directly, but didn't think that runners would be an application.

My hands feel soft today. Soft skin with calluses.

I think it's safe to say that you are, indeed, addicted. Welcome to the club!!!
