    Re: removing wings

    What kind of car ??

    I take it we are talking welded wings (mk1 2 escort )

    on a mk2 there are 3 bolts down the door pillar 10mm remove these ,welded on a mk1 onto the face of the pillar behind the door hinge area best way to remove the rest of the welds is using a spot weld drill and drill all spot welds on the wing rail as for other areas like bottom of the wing and front panel i would use a thin disc to grind the welds off

    its basically spend time and dont rush in, remove door and bonnet for better acsess the more time u spend on a good job u will be rewarded when refitting
