No not Santa time!! More importantly, don't leave your pva,sbr,freeflo etc in the van,or the freezing temp will kill it. Lost 2 tubs pva a couple of years ago!!!! Once they had thawed out it was like a kinda lumpy gel!!! In the skip they went:RpS_crying:so be warned and don't be a dumb ass like me:RpS_lol:

Had pva go solid on us before - suppliers sent us another load out foc :)
Our van has a heated screen as well - would be nice if it has heated seats like my old Volvo (very toasty).

Normally have a man test to see who can open the PVA tub when the cap is glued on solid...............running it under the hot tap always wins

i have one of those 15 litre paint tubs full of knocked up pva last year the lost froze solid i forgot about it till i got to a job, eventually i managed to defrost it and use it just but it was a bit ropey and wouldnt do it again, i usually get changed in the morning and back into clean clothes once im finished and leave my work clothes in back of truck, well my clothes were froze solid and the inside of my boots had ice in them..............that was the most painful change of clothes ive ever done:RpS_crying:

Worst time of morning - getting work clothes out of a cold van and getting changed (especially if they were a bit wet when you got changed the night before). If I know it's going to be cold I'll take them inside. Splash and tiddley brushes have been frozen solid before (same as pva roller).

Another winter tip, for driving really. I keep a squirty bottle of screen wash in the cab so when the washer jets are frozen up and you cant see a thing, you can put your hand/arm out the window and spray it to clean. If it freezes up in the bottle it should thaw out quick with the heaters on.

Ya know its cold when you're working outside and you go for a piss and your bollox shoot up into your throat cos your hands are freezing.

Anyways I was told by one bloke who likes going to Thailand that when you're with a ladyboy you can reach round and pretend it's gone all the way through...
