    Rad support help?

    I am getting ready to remove my motor and tranny. I have taken off the fenders and inner fenders. The only thing left is the body mounts holding the rad support. For the love of god, i cant get them loose? I rounded off one of the nuts already and was wondering what is the propper way to do this. If i have to, i am prepared to cut the damn things off. Any help is good help.

    This might sound stupid, but any suggestions on how to cut them off? I was looking at them and realized I need a new core support. I might just take a Sawzall and cut the support itself, then grind the bolts off. but I am open to any other ideas.

    i would try to cut the bolts off from the underside. if you have no other choice then cut it up. as long as you have a new one to put on
