chisle em out with a air chisle and your in, they rust in bad tho, it will piss you off, we did it ona fully prepped garage and i wouldnt do it again, just get a good bushed beam from a scrappers for £30 save money and hassle

worst problem seems to be that the beam has holes in the joins so rust starts there and feeds in seizing it solid, we has saws and alsorts but had to air chisle 1 side to fuck it up then once the outer ring is split it hammered out took from 10am til 5pm to get done, i was pissed as i had a good beam on another car but guy in charge (missuses old man and garage owner wanted to swap em over 'propperly')
(chisle spelling looks wrong hmm)

edit, course he fuckin did it this thread was from 2008!
