I do a lot of metal grinding and usually manage to set myself aflame about once a month. I do have leather aprons and jackets but don't like wearing them. Until recently I would wear army surplus clothing which was 100% cotton but now it is often made from polycotton which burns/melts too easily...
I purchased an ex Police van with 77000 on the clock. I now has 148000 miles and has suffered the following issues.
Blown intercooler hose
front springs snapped
ABS and airbag warning lights on
Corroded light terminals front and rear
Corrosion on chassis required welding (2009 model)
