    my camera battery is dead, so no pics... but I got the rear bumper off, the 2 running boards, and some small bits and pieces. I had to grind the running boards off because they were held on by screws that wouldn't move /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif then the rear bumper was held on by 1 bolt, so I bent the bolt enough that I could cut half of it, then I just kicked it and it fell off.... pics will follow in a few days...

    I also tried to get the body mounts off, but the bolts are on there like cement /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    cool, good progress, a bottle or two of release all and heat on the mounts budd even a propane torch will help if you dont have a torch yet.

    last night I put on some penetrating lubricant (i forget the name) so the body mounts would be easier to get off, well the impact wouldn't budge them... if I use a small propane torch, will the lubricant light on fire? The spray can says flammable and explosive, but I think thats just when its inside the can. I just dont want to catch on fire when Im under the k5....

    PB Blaster is a rust buster.

    I use AeroKroil, it's expensive but works like majic.
