There we are. Makes sense doesn't it? Except perhaps to superstitious lobbyists..who shall be left to their own imagined terrors henceforth....

Like I said, please spare us your miraculous results until you have a bit more than three days testing on it. You are probably the only person reading this that thinks a three day test makes for a solid conclusion.

Silicone shouldn't harden, and it certainly isn't designed to expand as you claim.

Just one more example of rigging your vehicle to blow, bobby baghead style.

Imagine your terror when it does let go, because it will....
