    Attempting to rough mount my AD355 body and have a question....

    I've got most of the panels stripped off, its taking me awhile because it was 105F here again today. >
    I have a problem though; how do you get those trunk torsion bars out without losing a hand?!?!?
    I looked at and couldn't figure out a way to do it without losing more than an acceptable amount of blood, searched the web and all I got was "very specific detailed instructions must be followed to avoid damage and personal injury".

    Some of you guys have already done this, so chime in please!!!

    another way if your not going to use them again is to heat them up with a torch, kind of like collapsing a car spring.

    I posted this last night but for some reason it's gone today.... Anyway, there are two pins, one on each side of the spring which easily come out. Push both pins out and then you will be able to release the springs from the brackets. Sometimes it is a little work to get them out but they should come out easily for you.

    Thanks guys! I'll let you know how I do.
    If my next post reads " aoing sdoweh sdghle asloet dlsdfsrwew." Then you know I lost a couple of fingers in the process. ;D
