Subject: FTE Pre61 - mice in storage

The 350 Lady asked for suggestions to keep mice out of her treasures
stored in a shed. May I suggest placing poison in a container with an
opening large enough for a mouse to enter, but small enough to prevent your
pets from getting at the bait? I used 3-pound coffee cans with the lids
tack-soldered back in place and a 1-inch hole cut in the top, and placed
them high in the rafters away from the item in storage. You may be able to
find something pre-made at your local hardware or pet-feed store. I don't
like to poison animals, but rats and mice can ruin a project in a very
short time, taking insulation, upholstery, etc. for nest-building. Be sure
to remove the cadavers often to prevent your pets from eating them.

Terry --

I think the metal flashing does work. I've seen it used on buildings and
tree trunks with success. But mice and rats can jump -- perhaps 2 feet
high in the case of rats -- so you'd have to have your car and truck pretty
high in the air.

Keep the doors, windows, and vents shut on the vehicles. Put screen over
the air cleaner intakes as these are favorite places for mice to nest.
Traps are effective -- I recently caught 14 rats in one weekend with 3
traps. But there's an almost endless supply of rodents out there, so it's
a continual battle. I think the best offense against rodents (short of
poison) is cats. They have the patience and can get into pretty small
places to catch them.

Good luck,

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Bench seat for a 57 F350

I recently salvaged a 57 F-350 from my grandfather's farm. However, the
mice and squirrels had gone to town and decimated the bench seat that was in
the truck. I am looking for a replacement and was wondering if some more
modern (70's-80's-90's??) bench seats will fit. I am just looking for
something more comfortable than the milk crates that I am using.

TIA

Sean,

Does your seat have the original material on it? If so, I maybe able to
duplicate the pattern.

Howdy......have a 56-F 100 w/292 (40K original miles) and I yahoo daily with
it to work......anyways, had thoughts of converting to P/S as well. So Cal
has a nice system that I considered installing......but after some time to
think it all over, decided to redo the worm and secter in the stock steering.
Man, what a difference! Not sure I would consider the aftermarket stuff now.
Just a thought, hey.....it's your baby......ciao, bill batte

I have a cat who's primary residence is my un-heated remote garage that houses my panel truck. Unfortunately she goes out and catches the mice and then brings them back to the garage to "play" before she eats them. I've seen some get away and run under shelving etc. I only have to hope that they will smell her presence and clear out asap. I also take a box of moth balls and fling the whole boxful into the interior. They are gone in the spring. I find that if you can repel them in the fall they find other places to stay for the winter.

Is anyone else having problems with Netscape crashing trying to open the new chat system. Happens every time I try to open the chat page. The app just quits.
