But, I was able to start the clean up of the seat bottom. I drilled out all of the rivets that were used, in combination with spot welds, to attach the seat back to the bottom. I then took a grinding stone to the remaining stuff to remove as much seat back metal as I could. All of the work was done with my Dremel using their EZ Lock cut off wheels (expensive, but they do work good) and aluminum oxide grinding stone. Turns out the stone, however it is attached to the shank, it heat sensitive. I got it so hot but not stopping that I caused the adhesive to melt away, wrecking the bit.
|This is the metal rod part that broke. Notice the end of one rivet to its right.|
|I think this is the seat hook attachment, but I'm not positive since I don't have them. I had to drill out one of the spot-welds to get it off.|
|All rivets drilled out and most seat back metal removed.|
|This is the seat back metal behind that seat hook bar-thing. Need to grind this out still.|
|Again, still some grinding to do.|
