The Art of the Pez Car

(or Runs Good!)

Let the Gluing BEGIN!

This went much slower than we anticipated. All went well on the hood and trunk... But on the sides we were stymied. The Pez kept sliding down the car.

Something HAD to be done. Then it came to me in a flash of brilliance (Cliff called this a "Eureka" moment). Again, the problem was that the Pez would stay on the car but would slide down several inches before the caulk dried. So, I decided to attach flat thumb tacks with a hot glue gun to the car. Next, we ran a bead of silicon caulk down the back of the Pez and then hung them on the thumb tacks (there's a hole where the head is hinged to the body of the Pez). This gives the caulk enough time to dry. Damn, I'm smart! And I didn't even have to go to Texas A&M to figure it out.

So, the results are below. The objective of this was to get enough Pez on the car that we could turn in pictures to the parade organizers and give them the illusion that the car has been completed. Mission accomplished!
