Am I safe?

Unread postAuthor: Flying_Salt » Sat Nov 04, 2006 3:16 pm

Hey, I was on a trip and accidentally left my spud gun on my porch for about a week. It was shielded from the sun most of the day, but in the late afternoon it would shine on it for a little. It probably got maybe 5 hours of sunlight, give or take. That's about 30-40 hours total. Would the UV rays make it too brittle? I use hairspray currently, maybe some deoderant. I'll probably move on to propane in the spring after I build my sparkstrip.

Is there any visible signs of it being damaged from the sun? [Darkened areas, where the sun was most shining on] Id say your fine if you dont see any such visible damage.

There's this spot that looks like a coffee stain on my endcap, but it was like that when I got it. Other than that, we're ship-shape.

basically what pimpman was saying is if there are any marks that weren't there before(that would be from the sun) then you could have a problem but if not then its good
