I am in the process of converting a bog standard ford GPW to British airborne specifications.

Most of the work is done and has been fairly straight forward.

However, I have hit my first real problem.

On trying to remove the front bumper I have found the bolts have welds on them to stop them coming undone. I do not have the tools to deal with this type of problem

Can any one here help, do you have experience of this problem, have the tools to do it and/or have a garage/workshop?

I am more than willing to pay for the help/service.

Ideally you would be in Jeep driving distance from Milton Keynes.

Cheers in advance,

Andy

Hi Andy, your talking about the 4 bolts that hold bumper onto the gussets , a grinder will do the job, do the nuts underneath have a tac weld ? Just grind off the weld along with nut, and just replace the bolts etc.
