    I've tried to buy some from guys parting them out on here but no one wants to chop them off :rolleyes: as it's hard to find them new without spending a fortune and used ones in this area are hard to find rust free. Anyone chopped any off before? I'm planning on watching for a descent set at the salvage yards but want to spend minimal time chopping them off. My plan was to hall my 2000 w. generator and a sawzall and go to town:hack: . I don't think my cordless sawzall would be up to the task:crazy: Any suggestions

    depends on the year of the donor... earlier k5's are mostly bolt on, only welded at the front and back posts... later models are about 75% welded...

    corded sawzall and genny and you could hack em off in a couple hrs easy... just cut thru the tailpan, over the wheelwell and down to rocker... and across the top post...
