I'm thinking "3M". Then when someone asks "Why do they call you that?" The eyes roll and the story spills out.... ;-)

Seriously, I think we are all hoping for a good outcome from this little faux pas.

Rag doll and 3M are both great

Brawny or Bounty may work as well, but call signs should never be too cool.

Just looked in our pantry and we currently have "Sparkle" and Kirkland (Costco) brand. I am partial to Sparkle. :-)

Nods to all the creativity going on here, the prop shop just called. The piece of paper towel was completely intact and fairly easy to remove. They thanked me for starting their week out with a laugh. Right now, we all need one so I'm happy to oblige. Thanks all for your input and thoughts.
Best wishes,
David

Just to close out this thread "The Towlie" would like to let y'all know the prop went on (sans towel) without incident. Run up was back to normal and all operational checks are OK. Ready to fly. One of the guys at LHM gave me some great advice. He only uses yellow shop towels so he is sure to notice them. I like that idea. I'll never turn down free knowledge.

Have a safe and healthy 4th weekend,
David "Towlie" Goldfarb
