im guessing you are doing a x25 conversion? eh?
you need to look at AZHONKEY's conversions... he has this done her on the site somewhere. and he is very friendly for questions.
if he is not here he is at: akfiles
say what you mean & mean what you say
there are I think 3 spotwelds on each side, it is relatively easy to separate. Once you grind the welds, it just peels off.
What he said, grind or drill the spot welds enough to break it loose.
