I think my nuts are steel.  I had to twist all of my nuts off until they
popped.  Some of them I had to cut.

That sounds just like my car.  One unique thing I found on mine was the
stainless mounts on the back of each poontoon looked to have been worked by
a hammer to shape around where the top and bottom half of the underbody

I assumed all of this was because mine is an early car or it was altered at
some point.  What you mentioned seems to show mine was original.

Hi there group,

I'm in the midst of a rebuild of Josh Porter's car,
Beastie Boy, and I have a simple question.  Has anyone
ever gone into the rear pontoons to remove the bolts
that hold the stainless steel bracket to the closing
panel, the fender, and the black mud guard (for the
lack of a better word).  Josh's car came from NY and
the bracket was stainless, the bolts were stainless,
the washers were stainless, but the nuts were plain
old steel.  They were actually so corroded that I had
to cut them off.  You haven't had any fun unless you
got a Dremel tool inside the pontoon and tried to cut
off a bolt!!! :-O  Yea, I know, all the ML types out
there have skinney little arms, but, gee whiz,
shouldn't the nuts on the bolts have been stainless

Am I mistaken, or did the PO do a modification that
just plain sucks??  Any thoughts would be greatly
