Be carefull!

A man and a woman from Delhi
Were found stuck belly to belly
Because in their haste they used wallpaper paste
Instead of petroleum jelly. ooo

Thanks everyone,

I was thinking of using evostick contact adhesive to stick the tape at the bulkhead as it will be difficult aligning the nails again. Spoke to the agents and they glue and tack to prevent movement on the new cars.

Thanks again

Dumb question.

Why does it need greasing?
