Don't laugh, I know plenty of folks that have done just that. I'm building a off road truck with a Exo skelton cage that I will be able to do that too.

There is a product in Europe the bolts onto the wheel flanges so you can roll the car on its side.

I hope that the portion of the bed the longest board is on, is not rusted to bad.

Judging by the color of the truck and building behind it, that must be in Miami.

The owner of Grand muffler that did the pipes on my 70 LeMans will weld pin hole leaks on gas tanks. His requirement is you have to have the tank full when you bring it in.

He will get some soap in there to seal it temporary. Then he cleans off any gas residue around the tank to lower thye fire possiblility. With a FULL GAS TANK he lines up on the leak with the welder. He has a wet towel in the other hand and welds it. If it catches fire he puts it out with the towel.

Some will understand why this is possible and other will think he is totaly out of his mind to weld on a full tank of gas. He's been doing this for 20 years or so.

The hint is it takes O2 to make fire and "Kabooms".

He obviously couldn't use the bumper jack. Maybe he lost that when he used the same boards on the bumper when he fixed his differential last week.
