a cigarette will not light liquid gasoline, bit it is possible for a cigarette to light gas fumes, and it would be really easy to light gas fumes when using a lighter to light a cigarette

OT

I'd consider that a good thing. Most of the guys that get assigned to RIT in my department are the best we have. Personally, I'd rather have the vets coming in to save my arse rather than myself or the other rookie.

do you have a picture of your windows? I have been thinking about trying that but was afraid it would ruin them. Also what paint did you use? Steps you took to prep them? Any info would be great......thanks
