Re: Messy fenders UGG !

Those suggestions involve a lot of work.

Buy some paint brush and roller cleaner, use an old towel.

I'd used acetone for years until a friend told me about this. Much easier.

Re: Water Pressure Problem.

I agree, My first question is do you even have a vent, since you said the PO put it in. Never know what a PO can do. Although it'd be impossible to fill without one.
