I'd like to see how you remove them. My problem isn't prepping or pianting but just getting them off the damn door. Too much paint in the torx holes tops me from using the correct bit.

I'll see what I can do; mine don't look too bad but there's no way to tell if they'll be a pain in the *** or not. If I have to do so, I'll hammer the bit into the bolt's recess and then replace whatever I've f***** up.

I tried that. Then tried heating up the paint with a torch to make it softer and try again. Still partially stripped some bolts. I'll definitely be replacing them with something else. Good luck

Well, I've also got a few big-a** drills laying around, doing nothing productive with their lives...so I'll drill out the f****** bolts if I have to. If they're being replaced, they're sacrificial.

Lay the doors flat and pour something mildly acidic into the recess where the torx bit goes to soften up the paint... maybe a small portable media blaster from HF? And give an impact a shot once you get it in there.

I've got it in the front of my mind, and yes...let me know on the dates. I love dates...especially the ones that killed the monkey* in Raiders of The Lost Ark.

That's a good thought. Body hinges might be a bit tougher, but I bet I could rig something up that would work.



*: In all fairness, Nazi Street Pirate Monkey is probably the most awesome monkey of all time...but it was still a monkey, and now that it's a dead monkey it's also a good monkey.

Dont use a ratchet, they seem to always want to round out. If you go get an electric impact driver, that seems to takem right out without sripping the inside out . Good luck.

I always use an impact on larger, frozen-up stuff. I don't have an electric one, but a 1/2" air-driven model seems to do the trick.

I was super pissed off today. I bought a windshield frame, glass, rubber gasket kit from quadratec. First off everything looked good when recieved (packaging). I called and had a glass company come out to install the glass in the frame. When we opened the glass , some dumba$$ that worked there shot a staple in the side of the window breaking it. So I had to pay a service charge for the glass companys trip. Quadracrap sent me another piece of glass, and I had glass company come out and install glass in window frame. I finally installed it a week ago, if you start bolts on inside on one side, otherside bolts wouldnt be long enough to start. Had somelook @ it, they told me the frame was bent. So I called quadracrap today, they told me they weren't replacing it. I told them to go f**k themselves. I've had it with s**t quality from these a$$ holes.
So I payed $20 on first trip, $90 for second trip,$350 + tax and shipping. for winshield frame,glass. And still have to buy another one. Every thing ive ordered from them is eithier wrong, or broken/ damaged. I hate these fu*ktards. I will never buy anything else from this company of retards as long as I live, and let everyone I know so they're not ripped off like I was.

I'd post this in a few other forums, or get on the phone with the company and let them know how you feel; that's the best way to help this not happen to someone else. I hate that you got inferior service and low-quality products, man...that kind of thing shouldn't happen.

Hey...here's a question: can I dial down a bead blaster enough to take off paint but not body filler? If not, are there any other decent methods that won't damage a skim-coat of filler? Anyone that actually knows anything about anything is free to chime in, here, because I'm really sort of uneducated in these matters...and many others.
