    Pit Mat?

    I normally work on my trucks on the dining room table, much to the dislike of my wife lol, but I always use a towel at least to catch the dirt. I was told to make a Christmas list and a pit mat popped in my head. Any god suggestions? Are most mats going to stop fuel soaking through and possible cleaners? I would like a mostly stiff mat, rubber I'm guessing. I'd rather something with a little more backbone than a towel.

    (LOL, hello again) I just use a cardboard flap off of old moving box. I painted it with lime green house paint, and it's been holing up well for the last 4 months... You can see it in these pictures... The best part is it was free!

    P.S This is my last post, it's getting too late...

    I can relate to you! LOL Our beautiful daughter was born March of this year and about 3-4 months earlier the wife kicked me out of my office to convert it over for the new addition. So I setup shop in the attic, not so bad since I have an energy conserving house, R40 Roof & R50 walls. The temp up there is about 10* warmer than the living area. I do some of my work up there, but often times setup shop on the kitchen table to spend time with the family while working on them. Well anywho I purchased way last year a Proline Pit Mat that works great. I actually just moved it to the table to work on. I was using an old kitchen towell to do my work on. There are many out there that should work just as great. I like that COWRC stuff SLW linked.

    Y'all got flat mats or moulded mats? If you got a flat mat does it do good at catching screws if you drop them?

    I picked up a roll of toolbox lining from Harbor Freight. Good stuff, cheap too!
