So this is something a bit different.

I don't know about you guys but every time I work in a car be it cleaning it or changing a bulb I always end up worse off.

Anyway these are what I was left with after changing the headunit and the headlights and also a quick clean. They don't look much but all drew blood.

all I have to do is think about working on the car and my hand dry up and skin falls off, the joys of having contact dermatitis

My hands are covered with scars from working on cars over the years. Got a big one across my thumb where I caught it on a razor sharp edge in the luggage compartment of Mclaren P1 nose cone!

Oh yes it really is my hand, machine accident

Healed a bit now

Looks very similar to an accident one of my old friends had about 30 years ago but lost bits of both his first and little finger also.....faulty failsafe on 30+ ton press....it wasn't a pretty site.

You don't use a nail brush, you bite nails down past where the grime is!!!! Fact.
