I've gotten to the point where I'm abut to take the trunk hinges off of my '71 to start mini-tubbing. How do I get the horizontal bars that act as the spring off? Or can I just leave them on and dis connect them from the hinges?
Thanks, mike

Put some type of prop rod under the trunk lid to hold it up. Then take a large set of vise grips and crawl into the trunk. Clamp the vise grips as tight as possible onto the end of one of the bars on the end that goes into one of the three adjustment slots and pull out on the bar. Be prepare for a good amount of spring pressure and hold on tight to the vise grips and let the tension off slowly. Repeat od the other side. to re install more or less reverse the process.
