          Go to HF and buy a large pipe wrench. Works like a charm

              We got em' loose using a big ass monkey wrench, used a small towel and avoided getting it scratchy.

                Wrap a microfiber towel around it first, then clamp it down firmly, if it doesn’t slip it won’t mar it.

                      Dammit! Got water on both sides of my floors. Elephant nose is gone, due to 24v close to the firewall and it's been a while since I shot air or push the dirt out with a wire, down those small water drain holes.

                          Could you explain which drain you're talking about? Is it the one for the compartment below the windshield?

                          Also guys, check out my coffee table build thread. I updated it recently, and it's almost done!

                              The elephant nose is the piece that allows water out of the lower windshield compartments. I know I have lost a few of the rubber grommets after the engine swap which seems like it would carry water into the cab, while the car is in motion. But the car hasn't moved at all in 2months, which has me tripping balls!

                              The drain holes I was referring to are the ones that run down from the sunroof through the pillars and out of the bottom of the fenders, if I remember correctly.
