Now, I know someone is gonna say "Hey, there's an easier way to take that mount off..." And I know that, but my grinder works just fine, and I have hundreds of cutting disc....so that is what I used:cool:

Tools for the job. ALWAYS use eye protection, and preferably ear protection when doing this kind of task.


Mount to be re-moved


I cut the "ears" off and across the mount to be able to pry it down to the spot welds


Cut the spot welds from in between the mount and the frame rail, and comes right off


Cut across the top of the mount even with the frame rail and pry it up...


Then cut each weld till it's free...


Drive a screwdriver into the top to be able to get to the remaining welds


Cut the last welds and it'll twist right off


Smoothed up with a Tiger-paw, and ready for some paint


Never know it was there

Next up is to fit up and drill the holes for the passenger side bracket...


Mark the holes, remove bracket, and drill for the mounting bolts.


Holes drilled, ready for final mounting of bracket


And there it is....


Bolt in rear mount, and your ready.

^^^Now that's a well built mount!!!! Hybrid Racing FTMFW!!

Build-up looks good man.
Thanks

Since you had to grind down to bare metal on the frame rail, I would suggest removing the swap mount brackets and painting the frame rail behind them with rust inhibiting primer.
Trying to find some dupli-color now, just was in that mood to get stuff done this morning:up:

Nice, you sure showed that heater core who's boss.
Getting replaced anyways. Soft ass junk bent with hardly any pressure.

Repeat process on return line and ready to run the line


Next up is to mount the FPR in place and start measuring for the feed line and return
