WD40

Post by Assen » Wed Aug 05, 2020 3:42 pm

Saw this photo in an old Clubmag of the NOC of Bob Rowley and Dave Fenner standing behind an Interpol 2 being assembled. The photo was from 1987.
What i noticed was that Norton then allready used WD40, (a spraycan stood on the bench). I was a car mechanic in those days and can't remember WD40 was around at that time. 33 years ago...
Anyway, WD40 is therefore Norton approved!! smiley

If memory serves WD40 was around well before 1987,and I would think is universally approved by everybody cool,J.B.

According to WD40.com, the product was worked on in 1953 and first appeared on shelves in Seattle in 1958.
