Short of burning down the whole garage I tried everything to free the bolts from the case.

A lot of penetrant, heat gun, electric impact then moved onto torch and impact driver!

I dont really need to break anything here.   :P

I got all but three.  Just working around them. 



This job is big for the little Dremel scotchbrite pads.

Irk recommended these Roloc wheels.  Yes they work very well.   8) Thanks bro.



After Rolock wheel, then Dremel, then 0000 steel wool and lacquer thinner.



I still have to do a lot of cleaning before the halves are ready.

Since I had steel wool and thinner handy I went ahead and "gently" swabbed the old Hondabond off sealing surfaces.

Its like a 120 grit plastic they are pretty flexible and pretty tough lasting. 

They also come in 80, 50, 36 grits.  1, 2 and 3 inch.  Im using the 2 inch 120 grit.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Saving me from myself...I had the garage doors open.

But, Rachel made me move the whole production outdoors.   ;)

Feels like there is no end to this necessary evil.

I like clean threads...Just Not a big fan of "cleaning" threads.   :P
