    What type of offer would it take for you to sell.

    What would it take to buy the '72 FJ40? No amount; it is not for sale. Due to health, I reluctantly sold the MGA, MGB, and TR6 a couple of months ago. The '72 is now a project my son and I share. And I enjoy the time we spend tinkering with it The '65 and '66 projects will find new...

    Ignition switch repair

    Taking the cylinder plug out would be my last resort choice. Post 6 in the link given shows the springs and such you will deal with. Not like a normal lock where the springs stay in upper housing (bible) and held in place with plug follower Hold vertical with keyway down and spray with a...

    SOR Seat Covers

    I agree it appears to be from an external abrasion; something from the seat area outward and down across the edge. Note the lower edge of wear shows the top layer pulled up from the backing much more than upper edge. Wear also extends to both left and right of the current exposed backing...

    screwed by Jim at OCD Tops

    ",,,,Not really cool trying to publicly out him..." Normally I might agree with you; but in light of the number of people he has taken payment from and returned no goods, I think any effort to locate him is valid. I am sorry if anyone thinks an effort to "out him" is worse than him remaining...

    screwed by Jim at OCD Tops

    In Oct of '09, I sold Jim a very worn original top from my '72 for a pattern; cost was postage cost. He offered a free top of my choice; no need for a soft top and I declined full top but accepted an offer of a free bikini top. You can guess; I have not received it yet. And some are...

    The Ultimate Grilling thread?

    cranky old safe

    Watching for an update that safe was opened. From the comment: "...drill ... and maybe unscrew the backing plate and opening it by watching the tumbler..." What if there is an inner door? Will not be able to reach lock. And not all locks are visible without removing the door backing plate...

    cranky old safe

    Sounds good; does not sound like you have a problem with dried oil/grease. The clicking is one wheel picking up the next. My guess is in the combination given to you. Try the numbers as given; reverse the order (if last is 0, ignore it when you reverse order); and try starting right, the...

    cranky old safe

    Good pictures; thanks. First guess is safe is a Diebold; the round corners of door is hint. There is writing in center of dial--may reference company, Eagle or S/G lock. You have the numbers to know; they used both three and four number combinations. Try your combination starting to right...

    cranky old safe

    A couple of pictures will really help; full front view, and close up of dial, The 100 on your safe is same as 0 on others. If the grease has the parts stuck, it will cause your numbers to be off as much as seven. Also depends on the lock used as some do not have parts that are affected as...

    cranky old safe

    safe Any chance of picture of safe? Some can be identified by appearance--shape of corners, shape of handle and/or hinges, caps on hinges, etc. Also a number of companies used Yale or S/G locks and built their own cabinets. Do the combinations you have include direction and count of turns...
