Okay, I'm working on my first fenderless hot rod- a 1929 Ford roadster. It actually wasn't fenderless until today- this morning all four fenders were in place. Taking off the fenders was no big deal, and the car already almost looks like a 1940's hot rod! (Even 'tho I have a ton of other stuff planned). Here's my question: what do you guys do with the running board braces (the supports the running board sits on and bolts to)? I think they're riveted to the frame. I have a feeling most have drilled out the rivets. Some may have cut them off with a torch...Do I have to raise the body to get them off? I'm also going to be removing the splash aprons; due to space and other restrictions I was hoping to leave the body on the frame, but these damn runningboard braces *have* to come off, one way or another. And for that matter the splash aprons need to come off, so I guess I am going to be unbolting the body and raising it. Can you do this one side at a time? Thanks for any help you can offer on this topic!
