I got stalled on the brake repairs this morning, so I pulled out the air chisel and tore out the rusted battery apron. I haven't played with a ripper in a long time... forgot how much fun it was!

And only three finger nicks... :eek:

Yes it is a lot of fun!

SWMBO came out to the garage one day to ask a question, and before she walked out, I went back to the air chisel. She screamed at me that it was loud! Well, of course it was, but I had earmuffs on and couldn't hear much at all...I forgot other folks didn't have them. :eek:

It will usually tear a little chunk out of the piece you're removing, but you can go back from the other direction and peel off most of it. You'll end up with bumps where the welds used to be no matter what.

I plan on going back with a grinder to smooth the flanges a little. The new repro piece already fits in pretty nicely; once I grind out what look to be some old repair welds, it should be 100% in place and ready for welding in.

Darn that it's the only piece of sheetmetal I need to rip out!
