Found a front clip donar

Found a 79 camaro at a local boneyard. He wants $100 for the front clip. I of course have to remove it. What should I take with me for tools? Will I need to torch anything. He said he thought it would unbolt at the firewall.
This is going under my 59 Suburban.

Tools to take

Rachet set and sockets..those bolts that hold the clip are fairly large..Combination wrenches..screwdrivers and pry bars..Torch is good to have..sometimes things are just rusted shut and the hot wrench may be needed..

A helper as that thing is fairly heavy..maybe a small jack and jackstands..Can't think of much else..

The sheet metal may need to be pulled..to get at the clip..Hopefully this is not all tha tfar from home if you need to run back for something..and the visa card if you need to get something in the way of a tool that you do not already have..

Bout all that I can think of..

Have you ever thought of looking at some of the 80's Chevy trucks? The complete suspension on the '87 that I had unbolts complete from the frame and rolls right out from underneath. So it might be more easily adaptable to the 'Burb than the Camaro clip. Just a suggestion that you may want to look into.
