    Re: New Tires or Keep Old Ones

    Finally 1 vote to keep the old tires, this is what I was wanting to hear two weeks ago before I bought all new tires. But you are only one out of about 20 people who said keep the old tires.

    Re: Tonneau Install Question

    The stiffeners are pushed all the way in. I'm going to remove the bar pins and bend them. I was wishful thinking this would be a no modified install. Thanks for the input.

    I haven't had the top on in about 4 years and it has shrunk. I put it out in the Florida sun for over an hour and still couldn't get it pulled on. I resorted to using ratchet tie downs to try and...

    Slide Rail

    I took the top off my 57 100-6 and 6 months later I can't remember which is the left or right slide rail bracket.
    Can anyone tell me if the little stop goes to the front or back of the car. Thanks

    USA Import Years?

    What years did the mini's get sold in the US? And when did they start again, 2004?
