not hard... you are there.... the 2 large side bolts. then the support brackets on either foot well with 2 small bolts each.. Then lift it off. I would soak the large outer bolts with WD-40. You might have to bang them out.

Disconnect all the wires from the motor (including the ground at the back). Disconnect the brake lines and clutch line. Also disconnect the speedo cable at the junction box. The bulkead is held on by at least six bolts. The two screw headed ones in each footwell and the two big ones that go through the outrigger. Once you are to the place you are now, you are doing really well and it should not take more than an hour to get it off.

If you look in the projects section, you can see I just did this

No, that is normal. The fuckers rust in place. Get a breaker bar and a pipe on the end and break the bolts. If that fails you can take a sawzall and cut them where the washer is between the bulkhead and the frame.

The one side on mine I broke, then sawzalled and then hit with a sledge hammer to free it up. The other side just slid out.

See annotated picture for more detailed instructions.

I would love to but I am swamped. There are a lot of folks in your area, I bet one of them has a hoist you can borrow. Ren Ching, cgalpin, Doug Crowther etc. Or just rent one, it is really easy to move stuff over between frames.

it is severely bent at the front, parallelogrammed and the right side rail is pushed out about where the trans mount is. it was a pretty hard hit. maybe salvageable but the new frame will make life a whole whole lot easier.

we should all converge on dmitry's place some day and get the engine, trans, and axles over onto the new frame. an easy day with enough hands available.

Free time isn't my friend right now, but with sufficient advanced notice, I'm game.

would grill and beer make it more desirable?

I don't mind to have MD and VA crowd over for a fast finish and advise, especially if I have no idea what I am doing.
My grill, usually, is something to remember.
What is the best way to get rid of rust, and what to use to paint it over?

Wire wheel on a big angle grinder, then spray with rust converter, then epoxy primer, then appliance epoxy black paint.

Some people say POR 15, but I prefer my method.
