Teaching all you old dogs a new trick 101:

I recall last year or two ago, reading about how a husband / wife team "beat the general by drilling out all of the rivets on their frame. "Score one for ingenuity" for the Happy Couple.
Fast forward to today. Dad 'n I are putting our heads together on drilling out the numerous rivets that we applied to both the strike posts back n front on both sides in addition to the ones on the floor.

Dad sez, "Let's drill!" I said, "F'THAT!!"

I went into the basement and grabbed a box of fluted 1-1/2" fluted masonry nails and with a 4lbs hammer, blasted the bejeezus out of the rivets and then pulled them out of the frame with the fork side of a 1-2lbs hammer. All 'n all it was a good night. We're back on track, and the car goes on Thursday to the speedshop for some additional help.

I'll upload some pic later this week.
