I tried to take them off today, but I can't, at least not without totally destroying the mount plate. so they are gonna have to stay there until I can replace them with something else.
Bad bolt holes are no biggie to me I can either tap them out and re-thread them or weld nuts on the back on a plate and weld that to the frame, problem is I need the boards to get in on days when the knee don't wanna work right, so destroying the mounts is not an option. but believe it or not teh 4 nuts under the things came off like they were brand new, and they have 0 corrosion on them, wired since its not SS.
Even though the weld job looks like crap it IT solid (how I have no idea) so I gotta leave em there, but heres some pictures of the third grade weld job
My 13 year old could do better with a 1/8" 6013 at 120 amps
