Thumbs up Bouncing Betty

Been tearing her down and mitgating the rust. Just got the 'cylinder' lock keys for doors/boxes. (#LL25 keyed cylinders - Cleveland Hardware latch)

Got rust penetrating catalyst into everything. I got three out of five working really nice.


My underbody toolboxes are JAMMED!!! Locks appear to be in the 'open' position. However, they will not budge.

I'd rather not slice/dice right now or spend a day drilling out rivets. Of course if i have to i will..

Is there something im missing? Does not seem to have any other locking devices and the boxes are completely empty???

Let me know whatcha think????

I think that mine are stuck too......

I will be watching to see what solutions present themselves.

Good luck.

I think someone tried to open those locks forcefully. Broke the shaft inside that turns the mechanism. Maybe drill the lock out and replace them.

Question everything!
