    I'll start off with what I'm working with thus far;
    [​IMG]
    I've removed both fenders and everything forward of the radiator support. I hit a concrete base to a light pole and it pretty much pushed everything back. Quick question is;

    How do I remove the radiator support? I tried dremmeling the spot welds but that takes forever, maybe just drill them out?




    Running question is;
    Does anybody near central NC have a front clip I can buy off them?

    its called a spot weld cutting bit and they come in 3 or 4 sizes get the correct size it makes life easy. Also when using only drill the frist layer out not straight through. Plasma works if you have access to one
