Default Anyone have an angle grinder?

So the bumper on the beater finally gave up and fell off....luckily in my neighborhood and not on the Glenn...



So I tried to get the bolts off the bumper bracket, and they're corroded to hell. So I'll need a grinder to get off the head of the bolts, so I can get the bracket out of there on both sides...







Anyone got one to help me out?

Get a wooden beam, or a log and just bolt it on to what's left! It's the Alaskan way. I'm sure you've probably seen one or two of these already as long as you've been up here.

Here's a Russian one, same thing...
