Carver Speaker Discussions and Questions
Not saying It was wrong for the last owner to do what he did, but kinda crappy not telling you about his little patch job.
Being in construction for 30 yrs I've seen some of the wildest things done with caulk and duct tape........
One thing, after its all said and done YOU will have the satisfaction of knowing it was YOU that brought them
back from caulking hell and restored them to "Original"
Good luck Art.....keep us posted.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
