Step 2: Break stuff

Cleaning away those pesky Datsun motormount towers

I used a thin cut off blade in my trusty DeWalt angle grinder (had that thing for goin' on 10 years) to cut just the welds (well, as close as I could get to just the welds). Then I hit them with my crappy air chisel. There were a few spots where I cut into the crossmember, so I just welded those up. Then I cleaned everything up (grinder again) and painted it. I'll be grinding/welding on it again, but it was easy enough to put some paint on it now and prevent surface rust.
