Bought skirts in great condition for cheap! Just 2 scratches but not soo bad. Barely noticeable IMO.



I was excited so I taped em up real quick haha. Won't put them on til I get them painted.

Would anyone have tools to help me with a couple of seized bolts today? I'm assuming they'll have to be broken off and possibly redrilled, but I have no experience in the matter.

Why would they need to be redrilled? If they are seized to the point where snapping them is the only answer, then keep turning on them. Yes it will take a bit of force, but eventually they will break. Try to get a cheater on the handle, and bottom out the backup wrench on something solid (ground or bottom of the car). Then run to the hardware store and pick up some new bolts.

Or let them soak in PB for an hour or so. And then if you can get them to turn at all, work the nut back and forth. So loosen a turn or so, and then tighten it back on the same amount. Keep repeating this, slowly gaining on it. SOmetimes that works, but not always.

I tried letting it soak, and I already bought new bolts. Like I said, I don't know what I'm doing at this point, I'm just impatient.

I suppose I should've mentioned both sides are ****ed up to the point I can't get a grip on them.

Just cut them off and put new hardware through. Simple as that!

Haha that would be helpful info...

Just cut the bolt head off or the nut like someone said. No, the threads wont be stuck as the exhaust flange isn't threaded. Atleast it shouldn't be...

Swing by the house and I can help you out. We just need to move an oil tank out of the way and can pull it in the garage instead of dealing with this 175mph wind.
