Bolt removal finally done !!!

Trying to get my 93 Tracker ready for a trailer hitch. Prior owner had removed two of the four bolts that hold the rear bar in place. Don't know what the bar is for, but I had to get it's bolts off to mount the hitch. Both bolt heads had been mangled. Ended up taking off the bumper face plate, the bumper, cutting of the bumper mounts at the frame end. Then managed to heat the nuts with a torch, one had had the welds busted loose trying to remove it. To make a long story short all is removed now, the holes that had bots or screws bust off in them have been drilled and re-tapped and the end plates welded back on the frame. Now I just need to go out purchase the hitch and install it along with getting new bolts (instead of screws) for the bumper face plate. Putting everything back together using anti-sieze compound. Just love it when a two hour job takes all day and still isn't done.
