Trouble with total side removal on 4 door car.
So I've been watching videos and physically attempting to make this happen like it does in the videos and it never works right.
By total side removal I'm talking about the "batwing" maneuver to hinge both doors onto the front hinge and take out the B post.
My issue is that every time I go to spread the door away from the rocker panel, it shears downward and into the rocker panel which never ends up ripping off. The last attempt I had to use a sawzall to complete the cut on the sheet metal that wouldn't snap away at a full 32" spread.
I have tried both cutting the top of the B post prior to the spread and cutting it after. Cutting it after seems to be a bit more effective but I still haven't had success.
Another issue is actually getting the cutter in below the hinge on the b post to make the relief cut. We have the holmatro core spreaders and it is very difficult to get them in place at a straight angle that doesn't point downward.
