I had a mouse chew up some of the piping on my observer's seat this winter. Anyone know of a good way to repair this without replacing all of the piping. I'll never get it to match.

Yeah, sounds like you need to eliminate the cause first, I suggest a 12ga!

Sorry to hear about the damage. Check your local ulpostry shop you would be suprised what they can do when they have something to work with.

Dont be supprised if you find more damage from your rodant friend later down the road. Check all your wiring behind your dash. It dosent take much to cause a major issue uder there.

Man... Sorry to hear that happened to you... but thanks for bringing that to my attention so I can try to prevent it from happening to me. In my garage, I have these plug-in devices that transmit a sound frequency that is supposed to repel rats, mice, etc. I have a couple plugged in the garage. You can get them from HD or Lowe's. Maybe that can help.

box of bounce dryer sheets. crack it open and spread 'em around. they supposedly don't like 'em much.

don't know if it works, but i do it anyway. figure can't hurt and smells good when you pull the cover off.

we have the little dear mice all over the place, but i've yet to find any evidence inside my boat. they've eaten poisen near the garage door sides several times, but haven't made their way inside my boat or bilge yet. knock on wood.

I have stored my boat outside in northern Wisconsin the last two winters, as well as storing my snowmobile in the garage for years. Dryer sheets from the dollar store is what I use. Three bucks fills the boat and leaves it smelling fresh in spring. When I uncover the boat, I load up the sled with some of the sheets. The only time I have had any problems was the year I forgot to put any sheets under the hood of the sled and the dang rodents made a nest but thankfully did no chewing.

Smells better than moth balls. You ever smell moth balls? How did you get your head between their their little legs? :D

I'm sure that some of you ride Honda Goldwings. I worked as a service advisor at a motorcycle dealer for a time and every summer two or three Goldwings would come in with either a starting or running issue. First place we would check is the air box. Just about everytime there would be a mouse nest in the air box. Just FYI.
