Re: FS: Misc parts - Van Island, BC

I need an ignition switch.
I would also like the column cover and fender emblems.
Would these parts fit my 72'?

Re: Some stuff for sale - Ontario, Canada

I would like the ignition with key and the rearview mirror.
Is the mirror the inside or the outside?
I need both actually. I also live in SK.

Re: wanna send cash but should I

I've bought things from others here. And the parts always came.
Not the right parts sometimes, but parts anyways.

Re: eBay 510 - true benchmark of current value.

The seller says he does not flip cars. He has had 3000 cars in 27 years. Thats 110 cars per year or another car every 3 days. And he doesn't flip cars? I call it as I see it. And although I see a pretty solid car, I also see someone profiting off another enthusiast. And as with my FJ40 obsession, I ...

Re: '71 4door. My first 510, and my first project.

Use a tie rod puller and pop that one end off.
then press the other ball joint out.
The pullers are only about $15 and you can use them for tie rods, steering arms on FJ40's ect.

Re: eBay 510 - true benchmark of current value.

Remember.
This guy has bought and sold some 3000 cars.
He owns between 350-400, but the number changes daily.
But he does not flip any cars.
He is painstakingly restoring each and every car and knows the fine details about all of his cars.
A true enthusiast.

Re: eBay 510 - true benchmark of current value.

As a side note. Flipping cars does not make anyone an expert. After spending 25 years restoring Land Cruisers I have met a lot of "experts". And most of these guys were flipping Cruisers for money as they saw the value of the old beasts going up. Unfortunately, I have had a lot of these rigs in my s...

$800 bumper??

I am obviously completely out of touch with NOS parts.
Maybe I got lucky when I bought my NOS front valence last fall for $210.
