    Hey guys!

    I need to pull an SM465 / 205 cab hump from a truck at the junkyard, but I can't get the thing off, lol

    I'm afraid of mucking it up prying on it the way I have to, but she won't budge!

    Any suggestions? Can't take any type of power tools, or anything that can make a spark into the yard...

    On my old red blazer I took the hump off before we took it to the wrecking yard. It was sure stuck on there, I ended up using a prybar and hammering it in as far as I could. It bent a little but not too much. Just took a long time and a lot of patience:eek1:

    Good strong 4" blade width paint scraper and a mallet. Tap-tap-tap all around the seal.

    Rubbing alcohol breaks down the adhesive a little bit, probably in your case just enough to get it loose enough to start prying. The tricky part is getting a little of the seal to break with a prybar or screwdriver so you can get the alcohol onto the adhesive. Once you get it a little loose, apply a little alcohol, pry a little bit, and repaet this all the way around the seal until you're done.
