  1. what's the best way for a home body to remove the flange on a F1 box? I'm planning on using my angle grinder.
    Thanks,

  4. Putting another flange and moving the box outboard.

    I used a cut off wheel to remove mine. Piece of cake.

    Removal is as stated a piece of cake. Its how the install goes that requires good skills.

    Mine had already been hacked up with a cut off wheel. I band sawed it semi round then chucked it up in a lathe and turned it down to the size I wanted.
