Cutting a frame nut off?????
I recently took my stock front bumper off so I oils repainted it and 3 out of 6 bolts snapped off in the nut that is welded to the inside of the tube frame, I can see the nuts as clear as day but can't see the backside of it. Does anyone knowing the weld runs all the way around the nut it just on the front that I can see?? I want to cut the nut off and have my buddy rebels new ones in its place. Thanks.

Can you drill it out bigger and use a bigger bolt and weld a new bigger nut on the back of the old one?

i want to say its tacked in the front...I took a air chisel to mine and welded and new nut in once it was out.

Ok thanks guys, it's one of those fixes that I didn't want to tackle till I got some input, doesn't seem to bad to do, but I really have no experience in removing welded nuts.. Thanks again
