Forum Title: OK, Who Else Likes Using Lipstick?
I am talking about tranfering marks not gender! OK I will try and explain: If I want find the position of something like a fixing bracket which is hidden behind a panel for example. (Eg. Secret fixing clips, in two parts that mate together to hold the panel on. So I want to fix one half of the clip to a stud behind but want to find the exact position on the back of the panel to fix the other half). Currently my method is this:- Fix one half of the clips to the studs, push in the other mating half of the clips, coat the back of the clips with some lipstick, offer up the panel give it a tap and 'hey presto' the clip positions are tranfered to the back of the panel. My question is, does anyone else do this or do you have a better method? . I use lipstick because it tranfers easy but sometimes is smudges and gives an inacurate indication also it can be a bit messy. (I was thinking of trying lipstick made by L O'real because I know I'm worth it) I must admit, it raises a few eyebrows when I announce on site that I am just going to the van to get my lipstick!
