I never thought about using dry ice before but that would work great for displacing gas fumes. VHT is enamel paint that is resistant to chemicals, including gas, but it has to be properly cured (i.e. baked) for those properties to manifest.

So here's to you Adam Petty The first 4th generation NASCAR driver ever. R.I.P. son!!
Kyle Petty & Ted Nugent, huh? Never heard that one before. But thank you, I consider both individuals to be swell folks & I'm honored by the comparison! Going fast & jamming to hard rock are two of my favorite things, sometimes simultaniously! (I can't drive 55!)
By the holy power of Love, Life & Laughter, I commend you to Go Forth & Be Awesome!
