Woooooohooooooooooo!

Bang! Got 'em in, toolbox got the first one!

BTW- coincidence maybe, but these are THE perfect size to go smack-dab in the middle of your recoil to cover whatever crappy OEM sticker is there now- or more importantly, hides the fact that your engine was actually made by some 8-year-old chinese kid...

Got mine as well, but since I just got home, nothing has been a target yet.

As for engines, IIRC, someone was complaining in another thread about how the Chinese diesel engines were a seasonal product at their local auto parts supplier.....

You wouldn't happen to know who that was, would you?

A poor excuse, at best.

No.

(Did that work?)

I'm down three already. Toolbox, laptop, and my wife's laptop. Didn't account for that- looked over just in time to see her sticking it down. "911 Dispatch. Please state the nature of your emergency" "HELP! My wife freaking stole one of my new DIYGK stickers!!!!"

MULE is the next victim. Kart in the spring, when I finish it...

You have to consider that a good thing; I mean, how many wives/girlfriends/significant others would be interested enough to put a DIYGK sticker on their stuff?

You're right, it's good. But here's the problem: If I get say, a Home Depot shirt, she wants it. See where I'm going with this?

I feel your pain. I don't care the cost. If two don't show up here, it's bye-bye Doc...

That could comes down to the old addage "what's yours is mine & what's mine is... mine

TBH, I'm getting the same thing from the little princess; when I showed her the stickers, the first thing she said was "are you getting some for me?"
