    Re: The little things

    Where is the money kept in that safe?

    I never get nothing from my customers except money for services rendered. When I was a young man, I got some attention from the ladies. but I think that was more for their pleasure than being nice to me.

      My wife is not amused

      Your wife is not amused?
      What if your rod job turned into $10,000?

          We found another pic that shows a better angel. It shows a shelf that you can also kinda see in okiebills pic. the shelf is about in the middle of the "tub" if you will.

            The safe has a shelf inside that divides it in half...

            The storage area is where you see the blue sheet.

            To give you a sense of scale the door that you see the back side of with the three clocks on it is 18" thick. The door screws itself into the body of the safe. I was told the door by itself weights 800 lbs.

            The safe is 54" tall including the base.

            I went online and found a few safe experts who are helping me through the rebuild process, I'm not doing much except paying the bills for the pros (Locksmith, Sandblast and Paint, Chrome Shop)

            I even found a few sources for spare parts not to bad for a 103 years old safe

              Naaa really my wife likes it she just does not like how I am on restoration projects This will definitely require some more tools that I do not have.

              It's not like she got to use the garage anyway

              I'm still on the fence as to what direction to go with the resto (classic or something a bit different like chrome the whole thing)
