Default First take plenty of pictures....

...some close up.....some of overall view....... then some underneath fenders, etc...... then take a few more....

Hi Alex

Yes you have to remove the fenders and the fender support....one bolt is hidden inside the support........which are bolted to the arches and through the upper sections...... all cheap stove bolts..... grind the heads off or over torque them to snap..... you will replace them all with new cheap bolts.......... finding the proper old style square nuts may be more difficult but we can help you..

Don't be afraid to use a propane torch to free up the rusted nuts if you want to save the caged nuts....... the caged nuts are also availalbe brand new....

You will need some canvass or rubber gasket material when you reassemble.

You will not doubt find some rust holes..... be prepared for some surgery.

.....and keep posting pictures for our enjoyment.

Just starting to reinstall the cab sheet metal on mine...... whole sections near the bolt holes will need to be replaced..... but it is all flat stock but will need to practice the fine art of butt welding to perfection.

On the U bolts most spring shops can make them from scratch in any lenght you need...... and get the proper large HD nuts and thick flat washers.

Let us know how you make out....
