Bleeding on a project can lead to one of two things: never selling the car or getting rid of it as soon as possible.

It was one of those where you just notice blood and try to find where it's coming from and realize there is a cut on your arm you didn't notice when it happened...
Whoa, where did that come from? Sh*t! I'll be right back...  :o  Then for days you keep springing a leak from the same place. Yeah, that's what he got.
Just needed a band-aid.
I prefer a little super glue. Been using it to close cuts for 30+ years.   :aarg:

A HF torch and a 5 gallon propane tank works way more quick.

Just sayin....It's monotonous work.

Yup these things can do more than just kill weeds.

You could smoke some Weenies and marshmellows after you're done.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

I personally like MAP gas (yellow can) and a putty knife as well as a wire brush. Lets you control the heal and it pretty quick.

Keep it moving at all times in circular/figure eight patterns. Watch how much CFM of gas/flame is exiting as well.
These torches can get metal red hot if you are going too much in one spot.
