I thought about using a sawzall too, but i use holesaws at work all the time, it's just finding a 6" one. I figure that the cleaner the cut the easier it will be not only to weld the tube in, but also to reinforce the frame rail we'll be cutting through.

Wish you luck..I have no idea of what he is thinking getting that..He has neither the skill of a fraction of the money needed to do anything with it..

Priorities..Kids gotta learn about priorities.

He got it for 100 or 150. He could spend less than an hour getting the head off and double to triple his money.

And I got my baggie of goodies.

Thank you.
