3/4 inch electric impact for 75% of the cot through floor bolts with no wrench on bottom. 24% needed wrench on bottom, and 1% needed cutoff wheel because they were above rear axle/torsion bars, exhaust pipe, and air bags.

There were 30 seat belts attached to L brackets & chair rail, so..... 30 nuts & bolts for the ratcheting belt end, 30 nuts & bolts through the floor, and 30 bolts & nuts to the chair rail.

Gonna have a sale on grade 5 nuts & bolts! I've got about 30lbs
I once complained I had no shoes....

3 days

3 days with a regular old wrench and a daughter with another wrench. The seats are out. I'm exhausted and i hate green vinyl like its political talk.
I may need therapy but the #^&@(*&@ seats are out.
I would post some pics but the site still wont let me.

I'm just starting my conversion but I opted to use a cutting torch with a 00 tip very quick and easy process. I did have a fan behind me for proper ventilation

Yup I plan to burn mine off as well. Maybe put a pizza pan under the bracket & over the floor to keep floor from Melting. I'm keeping my floor hopefully but small burn marks won't matter. Helps having machinists for friends
