I rebuilt the top end on my snowmobile over the past weekend (feature post coming this week). I now have oil and grease ground in to my hands. Ground in so hard that scrubbing will not get it out. I’d have to use gas to get it out…the problem with that is during the rebuild I beat up my hands so god damn bad that just using soap and water burns. I don’t have a finger or knuckle that doesn’t have a cut or gouge in it. I looked at it as the cost of doing business, but now I come back for the work week and simply typing is a bitch.
My hands don’t get this beat up working on the bike, but anytime I turn a wrench on the sled or ATV I end up gouged up.
