Ive got an EF XR6 wreck sitting in my garage. My parents have had jack of it and want it gone, but its still got the driveline intact. I have and idea of unbolting the diff, gearbox crossmember, K-frame etc. and then gettting some mates around to lift the shell out of the garage, onto a trailer and take it to a scrap yard. Im just trying to work out how heavy a bare shell actually is, and whether half a dozen guys could lift it. Anyone know, or have a better idea?
