    No skin grafts mate. Stating to look much better but it's still covered up.

    that was pretty horrific, but you've healed quick and well which is good. crazy that this can easily happen to any 1 so easily. and every time i go to take my coolant cap off, ill have this image of your arm burnt into my memory forever now. and think twice

    That's really cleared up well mate, looked extremely painful when you done it

    It certainly makes me think twice with hot coolant

    It will show up loads when I go away on holiday as I will need to put factor 50+ on it

    It look fine now but when I'm warm the scare goes very pink.

    Your not the only one that thinks that Stacey, got one of the funnels in the link on the first page and that seams to do the job of stopping air lock
