Under inflating tires to increase fuel economy is one of my favorites also.
Wrapped in tissue paper; just where did you buy them from; never mind I doubt I want to know...

"CLEAN CYLINDERS THOROUGHLY AFTER HONING IS COMPLETED
Cleaning is most essential after the honing operation to remove abrasives and loose metal particles. Use hot, soapy water and scrub vigorously with a stiff, non-metallic, bristle brush (such as a bathroom bowl brush). Scrub until the soapsuds remain white, then swab each cylinder wall with the hot soapy solution to float out all remaining foreign matter. Next, wipe out the bores with paper toweling until clean towels show no dirt. A generous coat of engine oil should be applied to all cylinder surfaces to prevent rust. During assembly, piston rings and pistons must also be coated with oil as dry starts raise surface temperatures and cause scuffing"
I noticed adding Bon Ami cleanser didn't make the list. Nor did they mention adding "foreign matter."
TBR, you're the ever ready rabbit of what not to do.. That said, you're really good at it...
Very well done compilation. I had forgotten some of those.
