That's a fair question. Used doesn't go through the fabric as smoothly, but it has a better color for dark clothing.

Reading around in this forum and seeing The discussion related to powertrains led me to tak a look at the transmission on the 8 window shortie. Survey says: Allison mt643. From what I read, I think I should be pretty happy about that!

We are still working on getting the seats out. Yesterday our momentum got a bit interrupted by a blacksmith who came and worked with eight of our students. You’ve got admit, that’s pretty exciting to hammer on some red hot iron. Though the way these seats are going, I’m not sure there’s much difference in the amount of force that’s going to be required. Meanwhile, a group of our teen girls are scanning Pinterest for “bohemian chic” decorating motifs. This is what happens when a skoolie goes to school!

I think if you hold the head of the bolt, spray anti-seize on the nut, and use a driver on the nut...they should come loose or twist off...Idk

If they are fighting you too much use an angle grinder. Get the $17.00 wheel not the cheap ones.

My personal preference is for the $3.00, thin kerf cut-off wheels.

Got four more seats out today and a bunch of the bolts off the side rails. It was great, the kids were helping out and under the bus and loving the sense of accomplishment!

You should've gotten the blacksmith to help get the seats out! He would definitely have the right approach.
