Re: Removing center crossmember

Re: Removing center crossmember

Everything went smooth until the four inside rivets on top of the lower frame rail. You canít drill these so I figured I could grind the heads off and knock them out. Wouldnít budge even with an air...

Re: Removing center crossmember

Interesting, my frame has no engine or trans in so hopefully it’ll be good.

Re: Removing center crossmember

Finally took my body off so it’s time to drill. A poster above said the shank is 3/16” so do I need to use a 5/32” bit? The rivet head is 7/16”.

Re: Removing center crossmember

I meant welding some steel across the frame to make sure the frame doesnít move while removing the center crossmember.

Re: Removing center crossmember

So no bracing is necessary for the center crossmember? I guess that’s only required for removing the front or rear crossmember since it obviously would free the frame rails.

Removing center crossmember

I need to remove and replace my center crossmember on my 30 coupe frame. Should I just weld some square stock across frame close to the crossmember to brace it? Any tips on removing the rivets?...
