THEN install on the wheel

that way NO PINCH FLATS

3 spoons are better than 2, but if you have a crescent wrench or long screwdrivers you can compromise

Thanks, I've patched a few, but it's been a few years, so I'm kinda fuzzy on the details... Also, when I worked in an auto shop we had 'rim ease' which was amazing stuff. Maybe I'll go beg for a small container of it at the local shop since it only comes in big tubs, LOL. Moving slowly forward - learning and relearning... old dawgs learn new tricks, then promptly forget them...
