Too good to weigh in?

We live on a narrow country road that is way too narrow for large lorries to get past each other comfortably at speed. Inspite of this, they regularly try to do it and we often get damage to our dry stone walls. The other night, another lorry must have tried the impossible and left us this useful bit of kit behind. Two lengths of aluminium trim from the side of a lorry.












I'm currently trying to find something to do with them. They simply look to useful to weigh in for scrap.

 Only here would someone be debating the issue!

We have just "cleared" our garage out - lots of useful stuff we had forgotten about

It would bake good ducting for electric or water either set in concrete or nailed to the wall. I'll use it for something one day. Mark my words.

I can't remember when I last did any screwing.   I've always been a hammer and nail man.

And rumor has it that it is only a short bent rusty nail without any hammer behind it.
