Has Anyone ever heard of

Has anyone ever heard of a Early Mac / Venture being shipped from the factory with bottom paint? There is a fellow on one of the Face Book Pages making this claim and claiming "his friend" who was a Mac Dealer confirming this ?

Re: Sink Drains

Have the sink drain into a 5 gallon Plastic Jerry Can.. OR Remove drain tubes and Water Source.. Sorry to read about the restrictions.. I assume there is neither a farm or a ranch within 100 miles of your lakes... If There is , what they are expecting of you is smoke and mirrors and silly at best .....

Re: Pressure Washer Use

Well there are no less than a zillion products that can be suggested for this purpose. For me using the syphon bottle that pumps solution into the wash stream is useless.
