I made the top to be almost the full size only to realize after making it that the inside of the tuffy box severely interfered with it opening....so I had to cut it up..marrow it down and being Sunday and the schedule I'm on I couldn't wait to buy a new piece..so I welded it together....there is banding and seal that goes around the edges and it looks great then..lol..

With the tuffy box installed..

Something like this had been a maximum hindriss to reinstall the transfer box. At least it had to be come out.

It's a time wasting joker for a job like this.

But good to know, where your passports are lokated!

In all seriousness I would never bring my truck to be worked on by a mechanic that posted that.

My mother with 8 years of parkinsons, no tools, or mechanical skill could have done a better job cutting.

What valuables are you going to stick in there? A lock of red pubes and some vegamite?

Love the lock. Does that work with just flat head screwdrivers or can I use a philips head in a pinch to open it?

I've been trying to decide if I should have sent a "Thanks" response to Barry's post, buy I've been laughing my ass off at every one so I didn't know which to pick. Damn hilarious! He's back!

Barry, you are a caustic little dick aren't you... You see, there are the talkers (you) and the doers (me)... You're the kind of wanker whose mouth abilities knows no bound but they fail to be translated down to your hands..you just drop it off at a shop and let someone with the capabilities people like you can only dream of...you have no idea what it takes to make something come from that little pea brain of yours into reality..you only know how to fork over the cash and say...what a smart boy am I.... If it were high visibility I may have given more of a toss but since the only people who are going to see it is me and my wife...and the guy with a snub nosed 38 pressed against the back of his skull and I don't think his last thought will be.,,now if only he had made that cut a little straighter.. But in light of your criticisms I went and added a little Barry to it...this should make you happy..

It was a galvanized utility hinge... And yes, it's the only one that can be welded in...and I would love you to be able to use a screwdriver on a Medeco lock...and I don't need to keep my Vegemite in the safe.. It seems no one wants to steal it anyway..

Is that fucking chrome trim? Did you get that from pepboys in the same aisle as the Himalaya lettering? You are just making this worse.

I am actually quite capable of working on my own shit but I'm also lazy and then there is the time/value equation. That said when I do something half assed you can say well he is lazy, or it could be he's Jewish so he probably doesn't even know how to use tools. But with you, I assume you have some sort of business license (most likely written in Aboriginal native tongue) to build/construct/fix automobiles. So how a professional craftsman could post that safe is beyond me.

I would call Florida's better business bureau if I believed they had one.

Fred Savage - IMDb

Isn't he running a defender business now? Thought you were in the middle of intense litigation because he stole Winnie Cooper's new 110 while you were working on the safe.
