I was putting the stock suspension back on today, and doing the back, i was getting all busted up... and after my last incident and trip to the ER, i decided it was time to finally buy some gloves...

well, doing the front suspension, i was slipping and hitting stuff, and still, my handsd came out without any further damage.

i give [up][up] to mechanix gloves....

They will unravel. Youd have to stitch them

I have mechanix gloves, I use them on my go-kart. they are really nice, and inexpensive. Saved my hands numerous times.

My dad has used those for years, and always brought home pairs from work for me.. so i've always used gloves like that, or the fingerless gloves above, just with the fingers, but basically same gloves... for working in places that are tight, or with things where dexterity and sensativity are key, they're amazing compared to any other gloves i've tried, other than tactical shooting gloves, but they're normally 2-3 times more..

I've worn out a few pairs of those. Old mountain bike gloves are even better. I prefer Thickster thick rubber surgical style gloves over anything. They maintain their grip even when covered in oil and don't saturate with fluids. They also have a much better feel for those times that you have to poke around in the dark. The other gloves are too thick to get a food feel for anything.

^Thats what we use in the shop. The only crappy part is they tear sometimes.

I also gotten them caught on something or pinched under something but that isn't the end of the world.

i use just regular latex gloves if anything but i normally go unprotected. maybe i should try a pair of mechanix and save my hands

I use latex gloves and mechanic gloves over them. The mechanic gloves get soaked with oil and grease and the stains they leave on your hand suck to get off. I've been under me and my friends car for the past 3 days and i'm still clean. lol I also have a one piece "space suit" as i call it. I don't know the exact name.

Atlas makes some nice thin nitrile/mesh gloves that i like, the mechanics are nice too but they wear out pretty quick.

I use them for the really dirty jobs, like brakes and such, or when I'll know I'm gonna cut my hands up (it happens fairly easily for me :(). For stuff like oil changes though, I don't use anything, the gloves soak up oil too easily.

my hands are destroyed. The cuts are bad, but the worst part is your fingers wearing to the bone from unscrewing bolts and nuts. I used to bare hand it, but bloody hands got old.

"this one time at my friends garage"... at 2 in the morning i plucked my thumbnail clean out. caught it on the clamp around the fuel lines. my whole nail was just sticking in the clamp. went to the ER so they could slam some foil type shim under my cutical(sp) to ensure my nail would grow back. i have used gloves of all sorts since then. :)

Many trips to the ER have been the result of not using gloves.
This was mine. (http://forums.audiworld.com/a4/msgs/2637845.phtml)
In short for me, cut my finger to the bone. Only $1000 ER bill which insurace covered once they were sure it wasn't covered by workmans comp.
