Default Tip: protect paint during maintenance using SOCKS

Every time I work on my RV-8, I need to get the rear seat belts out of the way. It's really convenient to just flip them out of the way. But, I don't want them to bang against the paint.

I don't know why I never thought of it before but old athletic socks make a great solution !
