These comments and the history are great. I hope I can refer back to this thread in the future with the search tool.

The bar is pretty low for a home for these doors: maybe just on a wall in a shed where 2 members get together once in awhile for a beer. Wait ... I take that back, I don't want to hear from the 2 guys getting together in the backyard shed. Not that I have a problem with that, I just don't want to feel obliged to visit.

Alternatively, I would trade these for a 93' 110 NAS in good running condition.
You DEFINITELY need to do a Registry entry as well. Come to think of it, folks should post up here any pics they have of Janey from back in the day.

Someone should call that bar down in Alabama named Carrigan's with the 109 as the beer tap holder, although none of us ever go there.

Why Jonesy & I haven't opened up a similar bar setup in NoVa is beyond my comprehension.

Perhaps we should raid Skinny P's pad to reunite Janey with her original doors (or skins).

Don't you have an RRC hood for a chalkboard hanging in the shop? They would be a good addition!

That's Janey alright. Damn I miss her. And yes not only was she a runner on the highway, she was awesome offroad - the gearing was perfect. I wish I had never sold her.

I take the blame for all dents. For the right rear, I'm pretty sure t was because I had switched to high range since we were covering some ground between trails, and had forgotten to switch back to low - amazing I got that far before it became an issue.

I did do some good for her though. I did the rear cross member, made those sliders, and various TLC.

I'm pretty sure I was the last one to paint those middle doors before selling it (now having the original fronts back thanks to Mike S. and Dave for the RURR).

I like your style. Mike got stopped at a toll booth in the dead of winter on his trip from east to west and had to convince them it was ok to not have doors because jeeps can do it. But it must have been quite a sight. I remember the first time I met Mike H. was when he pulled up to Rausch Creek in his defender with just the surrey top and no doors - in shorts iirc and a lap blanket... also in the dead of winter.

I have plenty of pics I'll make available to you. Just the other day I found a video of me teaching my daughter how to drive and parallel park in her. There is a video on youtube of me showing how to clutches shift too.

Sell them ... hold on, I didn't say I would sell them yet. Current offer is: even trade for 93' 110 NAS or free to good home where they will be appreciated by many. Sounds like there may be some options coming together:
1. Sneak them into Kilroy's along with a screw gun on a Thursday night. I have never been there but this seems plausible.
2. Offer them to that place with the cool tap in Alabama. I am shipping a set of Series doors to a guy in Alabama next week so I could include these doors on the pallet and ask the buyer to bring them over. Wish it was a place people went to though - could be D-Source good promo for a new crowd though.
3. Get them set up in Jeff Briggs shop. That seems reasonable to me since he is on the site-team. Cali is a long trip though.

Maybe some additional options will rise to the surface shortly too. I don't feel qualified to select so hopefully a consensus can be reached somehow without me.

Charles, you have to give me a way to search for those Youtube videos. My kids plan to learn how to drive in Janey so it would be fun to watch.

Your wine bar would be a great location ... I'm sure it would match the planned decor.

Now that I think about it, I think I sent Charles with the spray cans of red paint.
