    Okay I am trying to get everything ready so I can take the body off of the frame of camok5... I just have a few questions...
    I will have the hood, doors, and 2 front fenders off... est. how much will the body weigh?

    what is all attached to the body that will need to be removed in order to take it off of the frame??
    I'm trying to take everything off that needs to come off first, then do the other stuff later...
    How high does the body need to be lifted, in order for the frame to roll out from underneath it?
    Sorrry if these are dumb questions /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That body is heavy. Not sure how much in pounds, but I'd bet well over 1,000. You're going to be jacking it up and putting it on blocks and rolling the frame outside, I can tell you that.
