Funny, when you suggest calling a locksmith, most people don't want to
spend the money. So, this is what you end up with .....a f' up column.
Here now. :/
You have no idea what really happened there.
The damage might have started with a thief.
Might have been a-problem-over-looked because of the lack of money/job.
And/or might have been away from any sort of help when it finally failed.
Hard to image that last one for people in the rust-belt where it's crowded? ;)
All I know is this is what I started with (sissyassedbrokentiltcrap!;)...
Got the column from the manual truck ('90 F250) and it had that stinkin'
button you gotta push to take the key out! :(
Who comes up with this stuff? LOL :)
I can kill my old pickup (and my Bronco too now) and come rolling to
a stop where "border guards" and/or other fellow citizens are standing
around. I come rolling up nice and quiet for 'em. YMMV on that desire?
"did it die? :)" -Border Pee-Troll guy asks that sometimes
AZ, you can remove that "key cylinder hood/boss/bump" thing with a
hoof rasp, it's just sorry old cast zinc (the blue color in both our pics
is a dead-give-away for zinc)...
I've got a cool looking thin black hard plastic piece of tubing to slip
over the column, just hadn't got around to finishing it yet.
That '91 Bronco is the newest vehicle I'll ever own!
No air bags for this guy... Thank you very much. x]
I got a lap belt that holds my butt in the seat like my old pickup's belt
does. The shoulder strap is of no use to me until after I wreck. The seat
belt holding my butt in the seat has proved itself (more than once!) to
prevent the accident to start with. No kidding on that one.
Besides the seat belt makes my back feel better on a long trip too. :)
So it's a safety double-whammy...
