Drew commented on George Glovier's blog post Grey Streaking
"If you use the bleach trick make sure to rinse it very well once the streaks have disolved. If the 50/50 mix isn't strong enough you can use straight bleach but I wouldn't leave it on more than 60 seconds or so before rinsing. On stubborn…"

Drew replied to janet cunningham's discussion Egg Parts in the group Vintage Aluminum Eggs
"It did! So your lower trim is different than mine. Mine isn't made for an insert like yours. Vintage trailer supply has what you need. This link should carry you straight to it. If not go to vintagetrailersupply.com and search…"

Making a rock tamer

Unfortunately my wife's father had passed so we were going prepared to stay for the weekend. We didn't leave home until after dark on a Thursday evening.
