here is a pic of the right frame area, just behind the idler arm mount, that is massaged so the a/c compressor will fit with out cutting and notching the frame. if you zoom in, you'll see the hammer marks. again, i used a 10lb sledge because of the large contact area of the head, not for the weight. a 2 lb hammer will work, but will leave more marks on the surface.
