CORNER POSTS - Continued
Determine the length and profile of the area to be replaced and mark around its
perimeter. Refer to figure INSERTING GUIDELINES for minimum requirements.
Position and tack weld guide bars to ensure straight cuts with an oxygen acetylene torch.
This procedure will avoid creating excessive gaps, created by irregular cuts, between the
replacement insert and the remaining portion of the corner post.
Carefully shield any areas of adjacent panels or foam which might be damaged by the heat.
Cut out the damaged area of the post. Do not cut vertically on any formed edge.
Clean and smooth all flame cut area with a grinding disc. Check that any visible foam is
free of damage.
Cut a replacement insert. It should be made from the same material as the original post.
