  1. Pat might be on vacation...Also he has a full time job...Keep trying...
  2. Good luck Tim..Let us now how you progress....
  3. Why not use the latest and best penetrating lubricant instead of oil or diesel fuel...
  4. When I got my Ferret all my hinges were frozen too....The front hatch I could barely move with a 6 ft long pry bar...What I did was everyday I soaked them in WD40 penetrating lubricant and tried to move them...After about 25 days or so doing this I switched to PB Blaster (much better) penetrating lubricant and was finally able to move them then sprayed again for days always moving them back and forth with the pry bar working the lubricant in...Go to your auto/truck parts store and talk with them about the latest and best penetrant to use...There are always new products coming out on the market
  5. Hey Tim how is the work coming on the 2nd Ferret ?
  6. Remember to really concentrate on hanging on to your tools or they could be lost under the engine....
