Wow, I was beaten to this post !
KUDOS to the use of cardboard, easy and very transformable. EASE of fixing up screw-ups 'cause cost, well..., could have been "five-finger-discounted" !

Best of all cardboard is the moist vegetable cardboard boxes ie: cabbage, carrots, sprouts...
Waxed board , WILL last longer to elements and somewhat stiffer. Probably the greatest for wheel wells at a cheap.
I've used it for frontal air barrier/RAD. blocking and quite durable 👍

That's funny, my adds are mostly for J1772 cables and LED's. Lol.
Although, I do get a few random automotive advertisements. My favorite is when they say "click here to learn how much you can save on gas". It is always fun when the calculators just don't work out the way the advertiser hoped.

YKYAEM when you deliberately click on a comparison fuel calculator ad to see how much you would lose .

Would be a bummer to spend money on advertising to have a calculator that doesn't even work!

I've returned a couple of times to view if more YKYAEM additions have been posted...
Sad to say, seems "we" are running out of YKYAEM's...
