Hi Ken, Loved the video. However NSR did not need to cut the track. Had they taken the screws out of the stanchion just forward of the track end they could have easily pushed it sideways to allow the car to be removed. I share this information for others who may need to do this.

Hey, Group.

What's the latest best answer on replacing the Genoa Fair Leads? My springs
are broken, one wheel is chipped. Tried taking it apart, but can't figure
out how to get the pin out of the center once the eye bolts are removed. Is
that center bar screwed in? At $750 a piece online, I'm not jazzed about
replacing the whole car.
