    What not to do!!!

    well this isnt quite woodworking but it is sorta,, i had to stain the house and need to do the garage too before a bunch of folks come up here and the siding falls off the shack.. well i got a brainstorm that to save time and trouble to mask off the eaves with plastic and masking tape ..well that part was good but taking it back off wasnt,, i got glue left on the fascia and some places it came off great and others it left a trail of glue not happy but the house is now brown again.. the weather yesterday was a cool 96 and that didnt help matters on a brown alum fascia.. i hope i can wash it off with mineral spirits after it cools down some,, not gonna do it on the garage will learn from that mistake..

    Meh...too much work to remove all the stickum. I'd sprinkle glitter on the leftover adhesive and tell folks it was the wife's design choice.
