Re: Coins as car weights

I've been in a lot of hardware stores, and I've never seen that
for sale before. It would be very nice to find... Perhaps the World's
Greatest Hardware Store stocks it?

How much is lead flashing per pound? I have a roll of it (about 1/8
inch thick) but I don't recall what I paid for it.

Go to your hardware store and buy a strip of plain steel, around
3/4-inch wide and 1/8 inch thick. It's soft and cuts easily with a
hacksaw, costs about 5 cents an ounce, and works fine. Makes a nice
size weight in a single piece.
