Wow that one is en really rough cosmetical shape.

The bumperettes at the rear look in good shape. Are you willing to sell one and ship it with USPS to The Netherlands?

And the center cap of the steering wheel (if all white tabs on the inside are in good shape).

Thanks!

Nice build btw :D

I don't even bother trying with some of them, just weld a grade 8 bolt to the T45 head and take it off with an impact.

Or torch them. Not going to be reused anyway!

so the rollbar in my jeep came out great . sprayed the bolts a week ago with pb blaster and every one turned right out. i figured the 95 bar would be a direct replacement to the 89 sport bar, however the 2 bottom bolts on each side needed to be drilled out a little to fit. but everything turned out ok in the end .

That's what I did. The factory torx hardware is garbage.

Anti-Seize + stainless washer and bolts. Never have to worry about a stuck bolt again.
