BuzzLOL . I'm doing some re-roofing starting Monday morning... but won't need C-4 to remove the remaining roofing... I've driven hundreds of Chevy Volts... but never got close enough to anything to remove a door handle...

One should never be without a good supply of C-4. You never know when you won't be able to get the lid of a new bottle of Gerkins!

(Also good for ridding Wasps nests under the soffits and getting your Spring re-roofing project started.)

Dave57210 I thought you just used a 3 foot crowbar to take the door handle off. Rear bumper is easy - a 4X4 disease-el pickup and a big chain, after tying the car down to something big.

They are so strong they will easily tear the bumper. Then the bracket which is riveted on has to come off to get the tail light off! Which is bolted in from the rear where the interior panel really needs to come out which requires removing the seat and floor panels to do, it's CRAZY stupid!

Yeah but they assembled easily!

MARTINSR I felt like it believe me! How about removing a window, a roll up window in the door, front or rear, you can't believe what you have to do!

I pulled up the manufacturers guidelines for removing the rocker mouldings. You'll love this, it tells you to "destruct" the clips using a "suitable Chisel" no kidding!

It's your floor!

Ah, you're right. I forget how different the vavetrain, among other things. were compared to the 300.....I yield the floor to the next player...I got nuthin'.
