    Yes, certainly a belt or band arrangement, a method also used in stone work. There are a few scattered car chassis cut through on the same basic plane.

    Sure thing, got a VIN?
    Which reminds me to mention a prevalent scam. Someone posts a legitimate ad for a vehicle, priced, pictures, mileage, model number - everything.
    Bulk of responses will be scammers steering you to their 'link' for a VIN report. They've no intention of purchase, just collecting the fee for a phony search. Not to mention some sites provide that free of charge and it appears IN YOUR POST!
