Body butcher!

Recommended Posts

So i had enough rubbing finally. Dusted off the body saw and went to town. 1c81cf65a5cf0e00084deed28c883cb3.jpge5f290b9a347b9b128fd1b3416aeddfa.jpg0c064d5ca7bd7e573f12b37087650788.jpg

I reccomend buying one if you dont already have one. Sawzall is to bulky to get nice cuts with. Always lay out the cut in tape. It helps to not peel up paint if you care about that kind of thing.

Nice!! Much cleaner than my butchering. But I had to fold a lip inwards for my fenders to screw into. I need a saw like that one!

Yes, you did a nice clean job of it.

 

What size tires are you using? I didn't realize you were big enough to need to trim.

Its a air body saw sold at harbor freight. Snap on sellem for 200, china made was 20. Im running 33x10.5x15 now. I have a set of 35x$2.5x15 mud terrains i plan on running for hardcore wheeling trips and run the 33 inch ATs for everyday use. I have it set to runn the 35s using only fleurys spacers and springs. My goal was 35s and a very small lift. I will be trimming the rear soon as well as making a new lip up front to keep it strong. Its way too flimsy the way i have it now. As far as my oil leak goes!...i have a crank seal and sleeve kit but am waiting till i do my timing belt/alum rad swap to install it.

Ah, well that's a handy skill to have!

 

Based on your recommendation, I just ordered an air body saw from harbor freight.

While I was at it, I picked up an angle head air drill...I recently needed to drill some holes and couldn't get a drill in to the needed location.

 

Did you use a fine blade or coarse blade for this application?

I buy regular fine tooth hack saw blades from ace hardware and cut them into 4 small blades. Super cheap and cut way better tgan harbor freight blades.

I also reccomend everyone use an angle die grinder to clean up the edges. These are cheap and very handy

Thanks.

 

I have a straight die grinder, not an angled one.

I can see why it would be handy for certain sections of sheet metal that are still mounted to the vehicle.
