    I don't have the grille in front of me but what tools do you need to take a 1971 Sport Fury grille apart and what is involved. I would like to have it in two halves if possible for easy transportation.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    Mostly basic hand tools, ie #2 Phillips, 7/16 socket or wrench, 1/2 socket or wrench. I can double check the 70 hideaway in my basement

    The grille is already out of the car. It is in one piece and I need to make it smaller to transport.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    There's 3 bolts in the middle then it will come apart into 2 pieces. Should just need a 7/16 wrench and a socket.

    Take pictures for reassembly.
    Be very gentle - white metal is very easily broken.

    I was going to suggest this[​IMG]

    but the ratchet & socket suggestion is a better option if you want to reassemble it in the future.
