Default 1995 xlt radiator core support rot issues

as the topic says, am having serious rot at the mounting points of the rad. core support. how the heck do i replace one of these? i've found the replacement part thru lmc truck and have been scouring forums for 'how tos' on replacing it.

am also looking into media blastng the under carriage of my truck and then having it undercoated again. any suggestions regarding this process? am starting to get some flaking rust problems on my spring towers and want to keep the truck for at while longer.

any help is truly appreciated!

You don't have to remove the bumper, but you may have to remove both fenders. You might not have to if you have enough clearance to get the support out. Remove headlight assemblies, grille and body panel under those. Remove battery and battery tray. Remove radiator and evaporator (have the a/c system discharged). There's other small miscellaneous bracketry to remove. Remove support mount bolts and remove the support.

Just an FYI, my core support bolts aren't holding anything. The nose just kinda floats there.

I highly doubt there's any way around that. I believe the a/c lines pass through the radiator support.
