Gasoline? Thinner?
Don't be a wimp- scratch it open and get some MEK on it. I'll listen for the scream from here.

Jafo, Do you have any clear pics of your AT that you could e-mail me? I'm refurbing my basement into a boat room. I have a great photo printer so I can print them out...Thanks

I found that Solercain (the sunburn stuff) works good, hell, I don;t even know that they make it anymore though. I don't get sunburnt (or don't worry about it, one of the 2 )

My poison ivy reactions have cut down a ton with this little tidbit of info:

If I think I have touched it or been around it I just go wash off the area of concern with regular plain ole water WITHIN 20 MINUTES and it nuetralizes the oils and then you get no reaction. I used to get this 5 or 6 times a year, at least, when I was in the landscape business, now I rarely get it and I think alot of that is due to the "water" trick.

Good luck, poison ivy sucks....
