In the opening montage, Red talks about the fact that men seeing rust on their cars will drive them rusts as they see their cars breaking down much like their bodies do in middle age.
At the lodge, Red says Moose Thompson is getting his vehicle repainted by the lodge members and Harold thinks that is a job best done by professional and not by people who paint everything. Nevertheless, Red says they can paint their vehicles for thirty dollars and that is for the beer as they steal the paint. He goes on to say that when they looked over Moose's vehicle, they found it badly rusted out and now the lodge members are looking to rustproof their vehicles for under fifty dollars.
In the lodge basement, Red and Dougie advise an unseen man who has upset his wife/girlfriend with his dog defecating on the woman's rug. They suggest getting the rug outside and clean it up to hide the incident if she is unaware of it. If she knows, talk of getting rid of the dog in a sobbing voice and tell the kids as well. If she calls the bluff, buy her a dog of her own.
On Handyman Corner, Red shows how to build a self contained, automatic power washer for your car. He takes several sprinklers and mounts them onto the vehicle with duct tape. For a source of water, he uses the water pump and radiator by putting a hole in the car hood and running a hose from it to the sprinklers. Finding that the water is too limited in supply, Red sets to recycle the water by taking sections of eaves trough and looks to mount it on the cr.
For his advice corner, Red talks to middle aged men about dealing with people inviting them to play bridge. He says that they should go with it as it's good to be with people your own age and it's better than playing solitaire.
Back at the lodge, Red says the rustproofing plan is moving forward as the members, thinking that beehives are protected by the honey interiors, have covered their vehicles with honey. Harold points out that beehives don't rust as they have no metal in them and Red is unhappy to hear that especially now that the Possum Van is covered with flies and honey. Red says he'll get rid of the honey easily as Moose Thompson is apparently going to lick it off.
Back at Handyman Corner, Red has finished mounting the eaves troughs to catch and recycle the water and has added an attachment to give the car a wax coating at the same time. Red starts the car up and the water and wax is applied as he drives away.
Next, Red visits with Glen at his marina and for his boating tip, Glen suggests that after the winter season, boat owners should scour bottom of lakes for boats that have sunk recently as, given that water tends to temporarily preserve the vessels over the winter, they might find a boat that is in better shape than their current one.
On Adventures with Bill, Bill sets out to test his quarterback skills. He tries throwing a football through a tire hanging from goal posts but fails at first. Bill gets Red to snap it to him but Bill fails to catch the snaps and eventually Bill goes out to catch a pass from Red. However, the pass knocks Bill's Helmet off and he fails to catch it.
At the lodge, Red reports that the idea of submerging vehicles for the winter is not going to work out. Red, dripping wet, says he is going to think things over for the next two hours in Harold's bed.
Next, Red visits Dalton at his shop. Dalton says that what some people perceive as junk is art for other individuals and he does not restore items as it is better to be ' unrestored ' condition for collectors. Dalton goes outside and makes up a fictional story about a piece of wood.
At the lodge, Red, covered in red dye and squeaking loudly whenever he moves in the slightest, says that when the lodge members tried to remove the rust off Stinky's car, there was very little left after the rust dust cleared. They figured that spending a hundred dollars to rustproof a car worth fifty dollars was foolish and that was the end of the work.
