    Nice set of doors, minimal rust, only damage is on the front passenger door...opened a little too far. Also have hinges, rear window lift mechanism (motor works, gears don't), headlight rings, and misc smog stuff. Would like to trade for any FJ25 items or even very early 40 , like a drop down tailgate, nice early fenders, switches, choke and throttle knobs, and 1 barrel square window carbs...or anything '52 MG TDish

    Prefer not to ship the doors, but could meet or deliver if you have something for me, no hurry on this end...located in Montana but I get out every now and then

    And don't drive like my Brother

    I'd be interested in those inner door-pull plastic cup thingies (mine are broken) and maybe that rear reflector... Let me know.

    Hey, FJnotCJ, nice haul...
    Wanna maybe trade for an early ball-type front axle? I'm pretty sure it's out of an FJ40. 'Cause it's got "FJ40" cast into the housing. Complete with tie rods, diff and two very slightly twisted inner axles...
    Maybe if I toss in an early FJ40 rear housing, diff and untwisted axles? (also has FJ40 cast in the housing)
    Pics tomorrow when I offload.
    Oh, it's the "Porkchop" thread, not the "Pighead cleans up" that has the pics of the Pig I was dismembering when you called...

    P.S. Go right ahead and drive like my brother.

    P.P.S. Those look like later, post-'73 doors...

    Good GOD it's a small world! I'll pick up the door thingies from Pighead, saves me the postage. Shoulda clued in from the MG-TD reference maybe...

    What's wrong with your brother's driving?

    Hey, FJnotCJ, here's yesterday's haul. Not as big as yours, but it was my third helping from this Pig.
    Actually the axles are not from a Pig, so I don't want 'em. You?

    Dibs on the balls n claws, hang on to the chunks (coarse axle spline/small stud?)unless there is a greater good, they might make a saweet "upgrade" to the hardcore 25 someday...

    Hey, FJnotCJ;
    Got any more Pics of those doors?
    Particularly interested in leading edge of both front doors upper window frame.
    Are they sharply angled like mine? Or more rounded like SurfPigs'?

    And that would be me. I'll check my other doors, too. You all got enough doors to make a stretch limo, there...

    FJnotCJ, any front door panels there? Just good enough to make a duplicate is probably OK.

    Fenders?

    Those doors are, no doubt, on their way to Sacramento.
    Lore has it that there is a secret underground cache of Pigdoors in Midtown Sac...
    Also a rear heater core that leaks.
    So, what year is your Pig? And, why do you need a rear heater in SoCal?

    So Cal Pig

    I have a soft top on my pig, and It gets a little cold in winter in the mornings between 8:00 and 8:30 AM. :cool: I like to take it on surf/camp trips into mexico and:beer: :beer: :beer: as much as I can. I keep it my home in Carlsbad. Anyone out there know the best way to do a SOA on a 55?? If I already have 3" springs on it now, after a SO, won't it be too high for 35's-36's? I don't want to put 37's on it at all. Any comment or suggestions much apprciated.
    Pig lover out.
