One for the more experienced. Restoring a scimitar and having big problems getting the bumper off and front seats out. The stumbling block is the same on both. 1/2" bolt and nut, nut is on the bottom exposed to the elements and all kinds of crusty. Starting with the seats, 3 of 4 easy to get to so just cut them with the angry grinder, 4 is a right PITA! It is in a recess so no room for grinder. Bolt top is inside the seat rail with no room for socket or spanner to just shear it with the breaker bar, reluctant to weld a rod to bolt top as I can't get carpets out until seat is removed also the car is fibreglass so fire/ heat is an issue. Bumper is basically 6 or so of the same problem as seat bolt 4. Any suggestions welcome, getting a bit fed up fighting them.
