The twist knot wire brush on a 4-1/2" grinder is the only thing I found able to remove the seam sealer and primer easily. Just wear safety device with this, wire will break from the brush and will go everywhere!

Great looking kit! I'm curious to know exactly how your rear subframe tie-in tubes integrate. Are they punched all the way thru to the subframe, or welded on top of the chassis above the subframe?

Also, please PM a shipping price to 80301.

Thanks!

As you can see in my post 39 of this thread, you need to cut the sheet metal on top of the subframe where the tie ins will be weld. Once the sheet metal is remove, you will see welds. It's the top of the threaded sleeves that hold the subframe to chassis. The sheet metal use to crack from those welds in the chassis.

I weld a flat bar on the top of the chassis and connect those welds together. Than I make some slots on the small tubes and slide them over the flat bars and weld everything together.

Here are some pics of my kit installed in a local customer car:
