You guys are awesome!
Thanks for not trolling me and making me feel bad lol.  Im learning as I go.
I read something about this nut, er, idiot, er, uh, somebody...that left an *unlit* smoker in his jeep.  It wasn't lit.  But when I, er...he returned to the jeep and opened the door he couldn't see the steering wheel for the smoke...really, really, really thick smoke.  No physical damage but bad, bad, bad smoke smell....  I, er...he knew it was bad when he picked the jeep up from the carwash and the detail guy told me, ah, er...him that he "...was wrong, I thought I could get all the smoke smell out, but...".  Undecided

We learn from our mistakes...sometimes the lessons are a bit harsher (smokier?) than other times.... Smiley

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev

We did the comb transfer to the empty frames and it all worked great.  Thanks so much for all the advice guys.

We used the hive tool to cut the comb from the lid
Ill try creating another thread here and show the pictures.  I tried to document this special event the best I could lol!
