A rock hit the windshield of my p/u a month ago.  I called the insurance, which always (use to) pay 100% of the replacement.  This time I was told that it's a $210 job - and I've got $250 deductible on glass.

WTF?  When did that stuff start?  Does this mean that I can't have them replace the wondow after it gets all scratched and stained from the salt? rolleyes

Here in the southern part of the northeast, NJ,NY,CT,MA, PA.....we now have have liquid deicer which the DPW guys tell me is the frack fluid from the gas and oil industry/ The stuff that's too toxic to leave in the ground. It used to get shipped to TX to put in old salt mines, they said. Now it gets spread around on the roads!!!!  Cast iron manhole covers are turning orange and flaking away to dust, it's bad stuff.  And they no longer wait for snow to fall, they pretreat the roads the day before so we can splash thru the stuff before it mixes with snow or water.

A friend who does car repair says 33% of his business is line replacement.

Especially if they are Poly-Armour, they claim 30X the corrosion resistance of regular brake lines.

I'll give an evaluation if we ever get back on the salt.   rolleyes

Here in W. Mass they will spread pure salt on the roads early in the storm. Lost my truck rear brake lines a couple of years ago. They spread salt/sand mix toward the end.

Replace your brake lines with cunifer, easy to bend and very high pressure.http://www.copper.org/applications/automotive/brake-tube/brake.html
