He'll likely have to remove the bumper to spread the rails apart to get the new crossmember in. I used a high lift jack to spread them apart. I didnt take much force. He should be fine. Like you said the rivet holes should square the frame. It is a high flex area, the frame rails move all over the place when driving and turning the wheel. Use the search function, this has been done b4. .
I think using a grinder is quicker and easier to remove the rivet heads.
Yes it was sand blasted.It looks like you got the frame almost as hot? Is that sand blasted?
