Default Exposed Nail

Hey guys

In my reports I write up exposed nail heads cause they rust, shrink leak and so on. Does anyone have a graphic or an actual photo where there is a leak around a rusting nail?

I'll try and find mine. In the middle of reworking my narratives right now. I can't believe I started this project.

The other day I re did my entire template to try to emulate an amazing sample report I found. After redoing the whole thing I realized it did not look right with the HIP software and took twice as long. UGH. I hate learning all of these things the hardway

Well, if you can't find one, Juan, I'm willing to tell you about the time I shot a nail through my finger. Will that help? I don't have a picture of that either, but it' a pretty funny story.

That story certainly did not originate in stone age Africa...they have not even discovered the hammer yet.
