I live in SC, and have been working on a 47 2A for coming-up three years. It's hot during the summer here and shade is at a premium. I frequently work in a garage. I happen to have a 2 car garage that connects to our kitchen through a single door. A couple of summers ago, While I was still in the parts cleaning phase, I spilt about 1.5 gallons of kerosene about halfway into the garage. It covered about 2/3 of the floor (nice level floor!). The day was hot, the air was heavy...... and stank. Unhappily the kitchen and living room got a fairly heavy dose of the noxious cloud. I still don't understand how it worked it's way under the kitchen door and into the house. I had every fan running, I hosed out the garage, I used degreaser (talk about the cure being worse than the desease!), nothing worked.
On a happy note, the termites I found in the sill plate of the garage, while swabbing the deck for the upteenth time, have moved out.
I'm still in deficit Willys points but getting closer to break even (The Jeep is rolling, and I was able to take SHE for a ride two weeks ago).
As a client of mine said recently, "whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger".
