  1. The only problem with the cleaning is how much my employees are complaing about having to do them all
  2. I dont think anyone will be offended by your point of view, especially me - I agree with everyone on some level, I like original but also like clean My thanks for the advice and kind words was also directed at what you wrote
  3. Thanks for all the great advice guys. I would like to clarify though what I intend to do with the liners. I agree with many points, especially about leaving the vintage liners the way they are - however, many are very dirty (mud, cobwebs, grass, dirt, and dust) and as a retailer I like to present an item that is balanced between being as close to original as possible and at the same time clean. As a standard practice I try to clean as much as possible with material dry (ie brush, dust, air hose, vacuum) - getting things wet in most cases I have found causes staining, using soap on material cau
  4. I was sh&^%ng bricks and trying not to get too excited about the discovery....was worried it was too good to be true when the seller approached me in March.
  5. The only ones I am taking apart is the post VN ones, the WW2 and Korea ones I am going to clean and that is about it I may refurbish a few just to learn how to and have some to display in my own collection.

  11. These ones stacked on the floor are waiting to be disassembled.
  12. 1972 - 1984 Nylon shells, the ones in the large box are ones where I removed the suspension harnesses, sweatbands, and nape straps - next stop for these ones is the wash bay
  13. Hi everyone - been a while since I was last on here, thought I would show my latest find Got back from the US yesterday, was down there to pick up 700 liners that I heard about in march. Was told that there were ones "with green insides and brown insides" - seller was not able to send pictures. So, I drove down with my trailer.......(approx) 350 of them were modern M1 liners with the removeable suspension, 50 of them were late VN era ones (A washers & nylon shells) - the rest are WW2 & Korea era ones !!! Many of insides are rotted (exposed to the elements) on the older ones, and the p
