Oh Dear! But SONGS better be careful or a US regulatory agency will slap a fine on it. Just like OSHA fined that plant in in West, Texas that just exploded. $30 YIKES!

Ditto Alice. I used to fix the a/c on the bus I escorted tours on with bubble gum. Rather than masking tape I would suggest Duct tape...much better.
