So yesterday I tried to unbolt the pieces of that old fuel tank rack Landlady wants gone off her plaza…
This fuel tank rack is smaller than the one I cut apart at the target range but more heavily built. I wanted the parts. And since it was bolted rather than welded together, I should have been able to get them. If I couldn’t unscrew the nuts from the bolts, could I cut the bolts off?
Sigh. Okay – the original and still primary objective is to get the thing into pieces that can be hauled off the plaza, and by all the gods that’s what’s going to happen. I dug that hard hat out of the Jeep’s gear bag and worked up a sweat cutting angle iron. Fortunately Landlady’s plaza has AC electricity, so I didn’t have to futz around with a light-duty cordless saw – I brought an extension cord and went right to the heavy stuff.
…but I succeeded. I’ve got the trailer on the Jeep right now in anticipation of a dump run later today – the main reason I wanted to get this chore out of the way early – but later or maybe tomorrow I’ll come back and tow those end pieces away.
