Most of my products are carried by Pelican Parts, others are in the works.

The difficulty in extracting broken studs is where they are located, next to all kinds of things you don't want to damage.

The broken stud is cut off flush to the head.

Next a pilot hole is drilled dead nuts in the center of the stud. There are fixtures for this if you are not a seasoned pro like Wayne here.

Then the fun begins, carefully drilling out the stud. Careful not to break off a drill bit or tap in the hole or your troubles are compounded.

Wayne, the mechanic at my buddy Martin's shop, is a 356 expert. They restore vintage German cars so he knows a thing or two about rusty parts! My thanks again to Wayne and Martin for being my go-to guys when the going gets tough.
