On a rare, very rare visit to the local TJm shop the other day I noticed some THINGS on the counter. They appeared to be moving and multiplying at an alarming rate. Careful not to get too close, I put my glasses on and stared in horror. On each one was a sticker, Hi %lone !!!
Oh no !
"They're very popular these days, sir", said the pimple faced salesman without a trace of a smile.
I left, post haste.

There must be something we, as a responsible group of 4WD owners, can do. Having lived in the NT and watched the progress of the cane toad as it moves west, I am very concerned about the uncontrolled spread of Hi%lones.

What if they reach sensitive environments (my engine bay for instance)?

Perhaps we could organise something similar to Clean Up Australia Day. Stamp a Hi%lone day perhaps?

Food for thought.

Matt.

A Hi%lone Amnesty.

A period whereby all those who have one can hand them in without the fear of having the proverbial taken out of them.

Unfair! Hi%lones get all of the attention. What about those thingies that allegedly put electrons all over your paint to stop rust?

Now that you mention it, I did see something about rusted electrons on the side of a box. Didnt say anything about stuffing your HF up....funny that.
I was quite surprised by their box of stickers. $1000 ea. Apparently you get a bullbar or something thrown in with the sticker. Now I see why it's called a BULL bar.
My poor tired old eyes also happened upon another interesting box, called a shoo moo or something. Handy for farmers I guess.
It's been a long time since I was in a 4wd accessory place. It will be a longer time until I return !

I have impressed stickers which could be almost as good as impressed electrons at stopping rust. The stickers were not tested on animals and have few calories (if any of the women are interested in additional benefits).

Shoo Moos stop terrorists from hijacking vehicles - mate has one in his shed.
